Applications are invited for the position of Clinical Fellow (Middle Grade) in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery (ST3 level and above).This position is due to commence on 1 August 2018 for 12 months.

This position would be ideal for a junior doctor looking and ready to apply for ST3 positions.

Orthopaedic surgery in Cambridge has seen a dramatic change in the last few years, with the development of Cambridge as the Level 1 Trauma Centre for East Anglia as well as a substantial increase in consultant numbers. Five new middle grade posts were created to accommodate the increased workload.

A full range of Elective and Orthopaedic Trauma sub-specialties are covered in Cambridge, including Pelvic and Acetabular Trauma, Frame Surgery, Spinal Surgery and Paediatric Orthopaedics.

Although this post is not approved for training, the successful applicant will be on a parallel rota to the current Registrars, and will be encouraged to attend the regional training programme, as clinical duties permit.

Regular in-house teaching also occurs, including daily consultant led trauma meetings, as well as a weekly trauma 'grand round', where the 5 Trauma Surgeons all meet for the morning, to discuss the complex cases of the week and those referred in.

The successful applicant will be expected to complete and submit a publication and national presentation each 6 months.

A large number of prospective trauma and elective trials are running in the department and the successful candidates will be expected to engage in these.

In order to be considered for this post, MRCS and current ATLS certification are essential, as is a minimum of 12 months experience in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery. You must hold full GMC registration with a current license to practice at time of application.

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).
