Senior Fellow – Spinal Surgery – trauma and orthopaedics
Southampton General Hospital
Fixed Term for 6/12 months
We are looking to appoint a highly experienced and motivated individual to the post of senior clinical fellow (aimed at Year 6+ specialist registrars) in spinal surgery. The successful applicant will cover both elective and traumatic spinal conditions in both adults and children. It will be ideal for those who wish to enhance their operative skills and gain further specialist education in trauma and elective spinal surgery in final preparation for their appointment to the consultant grade. It is mainly a clinical based fellowship although there will be opportunities for research.
The fellow is expected to work closely alongside the team of specialist spinal surgeons and spinal nurse specialist.
The spinal unit consists of 8 spinal surgeons ( with orthopaedic or neurosurgical training). The applicant must have gained, or be within 6 months of attaining, their CCT and is looking to enhance their surgical experience. Participation in the senior on-call trauma rota and planned weekend elective operating sessions may be required.
The fellow is given active support with clinical research and will be expected to present and publish this work as appropriate. This post does not attract an NTN and does not lead to the award of CCT, requiring additional experience. Prospective educational approval from PMETB will need to be sought if time in this post is required to count for CCT. Possession of FRCS (Tr&Orth) or equivalent is an essential requirement of the post.
Please note that GMC registration (with a licence to practice) and right to work in the UK are essential for this role. Successful applicants will already have GMC registration or will be able to demonstrate they are eligible. Applicants requiring Tier 2 sponsorship should ensure they meet the Home Office application criteria prior to submitting an application.
