Junior Clinical Fellow (F3 post) in Emergency Medicine, 6 month posts starting 4th August 2021 and 2 February 2022 - Ysbyty Gwynedd, Bangor

Come and join us in Bangor for a fabulous six months Emergency Medicine experience in a rural ED, with a fantastic reputation for junior doctor training. Please note that these posts are not the same as the Clinical Fellow Posts with PHEM, Global EM and Mountain Medicine options.

Situated in North Wales between the mountains of Snowdonia and the Isle of Anglesey, this is also a fabulous place to live. We’re only three hours from London by train, or an hour from Chester/M6 by car, but life here is a world away from the big city – even our trauma is unique, with many more mountain casualties and cow/bull attacks than stabbings and shootings!

We are happy to welcome doctors who wish to just have a taster of EM prior to doing something else, or those committed to a career in the specialty. Our team consists of 12 SHO-tier doctors (3 x F2, 1 x ACCS, 3 x GPST and 5 x Junior Clinical Fellows) plus an Academic F2; ten Middle Grade Clinical Fellows in EM/PHEM; 1 EM HST trainee; eight Consultants; and two Associate Specialists. We also have a team of fantastic ENPs.

This post is identical in every way to our deanery training posts: there’s protected training every Thursday afternoon within the ED, plus a variety of other junior doctor tutorials and teaching sessions. You will also have an educational supervisor to help you achieve your career aims. Plus, we can offer you up to 11 days personal development time to attend suitable training opportunities. This is in addition to study leave which comes with a budget to fund your choice of life support course.

You will have excellent shop-floor support from enthusiastic senior and middle grade doctors, and the rota is carefully designed to minimise fatigue, with night shifts being a maximum of four shifts in a row.

There is the opportunity to complete an audit, and we specialise in helping both junior doctors and medical students achieve their first publications, with dozens of conference posters produced by our ED team.

If a dynamic, friendly department sounds like your cup of tea do get in touch for a chat! Contact Dr Helen Salter on 03000 851064 (via Lou, ED secretary)
