The Noble’s Hospital team is looking to recruit a Junior Clinical Fellow in Trauma & Orthopaedics. The post is based at Noble’s Hospital which is a modern, bright hospital serving the acute healthcare needs of the Isle of Man. Like the UK NHS, the Isle of Man Health Service is free at the point of
delivery. The posts would be ideally suited to someone who has completed their foundation training but would like further experience in a small but supportive Trauma & Orthopaedics Department prior to committing to joining a specialty training programme.
The successful candidates will be working within one of four Trauma & Orthopaedic Consultant Teams, who have special interests in upper limb surgery, spinal surgery, arthroplasty, and lower limb surgery. The successful candidates will also experience management of major trauma associated with the island’s widespread motorsport culture – this is particularly concentrated during the TT fortnight in June followed by the Manx Grand Prix in August where several major traumas can be admitted each day requiring extensive stabilisation and intervention. Outside the motorsport season, the successful candidates will have ample time to develop core techniques within orthopaedic and trauma surgery, as well as undertake audit and other projects to improve their CV in preparation for core or
specialty training applications.
On call supplement is 2A (subject to change)
Noble’s Hospital operates a well-resourced education and training centre called Keyll Darree, which comprises lecture theatre, well stocked medical library, training facilities and a state of the art simulation lab which is operated by trained simulation practitioners. Frequent simulation based surgical training programmes are run from the lab as well as drills to practice emergency procedures.
The Isle of Man is a self-governing dependency within the British Isles. The Terms and Conditions of service are essentially the same as in the United Kingdom with enhancements such as automatic annual incremental pay rises.
