New Junior Specialist Doctor (JSD) Rotation in Medical Specialties (copy)
New Junior Specialist Doctor (JSD) Rotation in Medical Specialties, Emergency Medicine, Surgical Specialties, Paediatrics and Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Right now we are building our future”
We are seeking to recruit a number of enthusiastic and hard working doctors to join our newly established JSD Rotation at City Hospital, Birmingham
and Sandwell General Hospital. These posts will be one or two year fixed term posts in the first instance starting from 2 August 2017 with the
possibility of longer term opportunities within the Trust subject to performance and progress. These posts would be at CT/ST 1-2 level (ie 2-3 years post qualification) and whilst not approved training posts we would mirror the training opportunities to those given to training post holders. The JSD rotation will allow you to consolidate your medical experience in a supportive environment, giving you wide ranging clinical exposure and training in a progressive Trust that has won numerous national and local awards. We would be keen to work with successful applicants to design rotations that would provide exposure in a range of different specialties to suit their training needs and career aspirations eg a medical rotation, a surgical rotation or a broad range of specialties to mirror that required for GP training. We envisage that the JSD would act as a stepping stone into specialty training.
The successful candidates will have at least 2 years experience post qualification, full GMC Registration with a license to practice and up to date ALS certification.
The Trust is building the 670 bed Midland Metropolitan Hospital which is due to open in October 2018. This new state of the art acute hospital in Grove
Lane, Smethwick will bring together all acute services onto one site.
The single-site Acute Hospital will benefit from co-located specialist services which will support the new Emergency Department with dedicated
imaging facility and Assessment Units. It will provide state-of-the-art treatment and care for patients from Sandwell and across the region and will
become the civic heart of the area and a point of pride for the community.
The Trust is a key partner with the local commissioning group and the local authorities in the Right Care Right Here programme which seeks to deliver
a redevelopment of local health services. The programme includes one of the largest investments in the UK with new facilities in both the acute and
community sectors. Included within this is the new Midland Metropolitan Hospital.
The Trust has a very good reputation for undergraduate and postgraduate teaching with strong links to the University of Birmingham and Health
Education West Midlands. The Trust is home to a number of University departments and we are now looking to develop research capacity in a number of specialties in the Trust including Emergency Medicine so there is likely to be opportunities to become involved in research activities. There is a clinical skills laboratory on the Acute Medical Unit which is the first in the UK.
Birmingham is a vibrant, multi-cultural city and it is a very exciting place to live and work. It has a population of 1.1 million, the youngest in Europe. Its
residents speak over 140 languages and blend different cultures and nationalities with history that is rich in industrial heritage.
The area boasts affordable housing with popular residential districts such as Harborne and Sutton Coldfield an easy commute to either of the main
hospital sites. There are a number of very good schools and colleges locally (including a number of independent and grammar schools such as the
King Edwards Schools). Birmingham is a very green city with more than 8,000 acres of green space including impressive parks around the city. Due to our central location and good motorway connections we are in easy reach of a number of beautiful rural locations including the Peak District, Cannock
Chase, the Lickey Hills and the Cotswolds.
