Microsurgical Reconstructive Fellows

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust has an exciting opportunity for applicants to apply for Fellowships in Microsurgical Reconstruction to join the Trust Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

One post is due to commence in February 2018 for a fixed term period of 5 months with a possibility of extension. Other fixed term 6 and 12 months posts may also be appointed to the longer term so suitable applicants are encouraged to apply. 

The Department specialises in microsurgical reconstruction; head and neck reconstruction, breast reconstruction and extremity reconstruction. There is also increasing activity at the Trust’s Level 1 Major Trauma Centre at St Mary’s Hospital. The Department is responsible for the care of general Plastic Surgery patients with an emphasis on tertiary referrals and undertakes between 200-250 free flaps per year.

The Microsurgical Reconstructive Fellow will be expected to provide guidance to the more junior registrars in General Plastic Surgery and will work an equivalent on call rota which is currently 1:9 with prospective cover. The post does not have Post Graduate Dean approval but has been recognised by the SAC so that the successful applicant can prospectively apply for the time to be recognised for training. The post-holder is encouraged to partake in and publish projects that have been established, as well as newer studies, and present the results at local and national meetings.

Applicants must possess the MRCS or equivalent exam. Candidates must be eligible for registration or hold full registration with the GMC. Microsurgical experience such as previous fellowship is desirable but not essential.

For informal discussions or further information, interested candidates can contact: Mr Frank Henry, francis.henry@nhs.net, Miss Jude Hunter judith.hunter7@nhs.net, Mr Navid Jallali navid.jallali@nhs.net or Simon Wood simon.wood5@nhs.net (Please DO NOT send CVs to Consultants).
