Clinical Fellow posts in Emergency Medicine, Bangor Ysbyty Gwynedd

Combined with either PHEM, Medical Education, Mountain Medicine or Global EM

12 month posts commencing 7 August 2019 or 4 February 2020

(shorter & longer posts and alternative start dates by negotiation)

 

Bangor ED’s Clinical Fellow posts are the original and best year out of training. We invented the concept, and we’re now recruiting our 9th cohort of doctors. These posts offer the opportunity to live on the doorstep of Snowdon and Anglesey, and gain an appreciation of the challenge of remote/rural EM that city training can never prepare you for.

 

These are clinical fellow posts in rural EM with a fabulous bonus – nearly 25% of the job plan is away from the shop floor (and for MedEd posts it’s 50%), with your choice of personal development time, plus dedicated SPA time. Choose from original PHEM, Medical Education, Mountain Medicine or Global EM. Some options can be mixed and matched, and we’d particularly welcome applicants wishing to do MedEd. Although many of our fellows come straight after ACCS (any speciality) coming a year or two later (ie after EM ST4/5) is even better. We also offer a generous study leave budget – either up to £5k to attend suitable relevant courses or we fund your postgraduate qualification (up to the fee level for UK students).

 

The posts are open to all those with experience equivalent to ACCS (including international applicants) and at least 5 years’ post-graduation training. You pick the number of sessions per week you want to work. If you want to maximize pay, you’d opt for the standard 13 session job plan (approx = Band 1A rota). This comes to 44 days of development time over 12 months, plus 22 days of SPA.

These are adjusted pro-rata for fellows opting for 10, 11 or 12 sessions. We recommend 11 sessions as the optimal “sweet spot” balancing enough salary and experience in your choice of development time, whilst optimizing the flexibility of the annualised rota features.

 

The hospital component of the posts is in the E.D in Bangor Hospital (Ysbyty Gwynedd) in NW Wales. All our fellows are expected to take an active part in teaching, service development and audit alongside our HSTs, but those wishing to put particular effort into CV-enhancement or who wish to start a research portfolio, you will find enthusiastic educational supervisors standing by to assist.

 

  • PHEM posts are designed to be the perfect “prep school” for later PHEM sub-speciality training. You’ll undertake shifts with Welsh Ambulance and EMRTS, the Welsh HEMS service (max 50% of your PHEM time). Close relations with our SAR and Mountain Rescue colleagues provide opportunities to gain unique insights into SAR medicine in Snowdonia.

 

  • Our Medical Education option offers a generous 50% time devoted to medical education. This primarily involves teaching medical students (3rd and final years from Cardiff and Swansea), but there are also opportunities to reach paramedic students, Advanced Practice MSc students (nursing and paramedic) and junior doctors – and we throw in the option of a fully funded PGCertMedEd for MedEd Fellows staying 12 months. You will also have the opportunity to hone your simulation teaching skills both in the hospital sim suite and in the department.

 

  • Mountain Medicine and Global EM are our newest options. They’re more specialized – please read the Job Description carefully. We are looking for Post pioneers for August 2019; you’ll be working with us to develop these posts.

 

So who are you?

 

  • You must have completed ACCS (EM, anaesthetics or AM)

 

  • Alternatively, if you have trained abroad or have had a non-standard career to date, you’ll need to demonstrate you have comparable experience to those who have completed UK ACCS. Your application form must include details on the amount of time you have spent training in EM related acute specialties. Better still, get in touch to discuss eligibility.

 

  • Applicants with fewer than 10 months’ previous EM experience are not eligible for posts under 12 months duration.

 

  • If you’re on run-through training, you’d need to come on OOPE – please discuss your plans with your TPD as soon as possible (6 months notice to your TPD is normally required).

 

  • You must hold the MRCEM/FRCEM Intermediate, Primary FRCA, MRCP or equivalent (or expect to do so by the starting date)

 

  • You don’t need any PHEM experience – we’re happy to train you from scratch. The same applies to the MedEd and Global EM programme. The Mountain Medicine post needs substantial mountaineering experience if you want to do the DipMM – we can offer research-based alternative if not.

 

  • Please check the Person Specification carefully, and if you are applying for the PHEM post, note the Occupational Health requirements.

 

  • We are currently recruiting for starting dates in August 2019 and April 2020: we strongly prefer new starters to join at these times, but we can be flexible if required. Outstanding applicants may be considered for deferred starts in August 2020

 

  • If you’re an EM Higher Specialist Trainee, and would like to come to Bangor without delaying your CCT, talk to us about coming on OOPT (sadly no PHEM etc but most of the other benefits, including one whole day a week of SPA!). If you want to guarantee yourself a slot for OOPT, you’d need to apply here, alongside the Clinical Fellows.
