Applications are invited for a Senior Clinical Fellowship position in Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions (ICC) initially for 12 months starting 7 February 2018, at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, part of Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This appointment is designed to provide a senior cardiology or post CCT trainee with experience and training in the management of ICC and inflammatory/infiltrative disorders as an Out Of Programme training opportunity or before moving to a Consultant position.

Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) offers a regional service for the diagnosis and on-going management of Inherited Cardiovascular Conditions. The Regional Genetics Service is based on site and the Cardiology Department works closely with it to provide a multi-disciplinary approach. The patient population covers the entire spectrum of inherited cardiovascular conditions including aortopathies, cardiomyopathy, inherited arrhythmias, neuromuscular disorders with cardiac involvement and multi-system disorders. CUH is also one of the six designated adult centres for Fabry’s disease and the regional centre for vasculitis. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to take part in the cardiac management of these patients.

The ICC Fellow will be expected to participate in the cardiology SpR out-of-hours on-call rota (1 in 8, non-resident) but not in the delivery of the day-time in-patient service unless desired.  There is no General Medicine commitment. The post is available from early February 2018.

Applicants must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013).
