Applications are invited for a Clinical Fellow (Core) in General Medicine with Orthogeriatrics at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH).

This post is available from 07 February 2018 until 31 July 2018.

This is an exciting time for the department balancing the complexity of patients received as part of our Major Trauma Centre, the development of a fully integrated Orthogeriatric team and the regular elective Orthopaedic workload. This is an opportunity to develop the successful applicants skills required for perioperative care and medical optimisation including an understanding of falls and bone health. Please note this is not a surgical post.

Please note that these posts do not carry Postgraduate Dean’s approval or training recognition.

The applicant 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).  Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.

Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is an Equal Opportunities Employer.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
