PERI-CCT Queen Square Fellowship Program
Applications are invited for the 2019-2020 & 2020-2021 round of the Queen Square fellowships program. This program includes subspecialised training fellowships in the following neurosurgical areas:
Functional neurosurgery Sept 19-20 & 20-21, Pituitary (including endoscopy and anterior Skullbase) Surgery Sept 19-20 & 20-21, Complex spinal surgery April 19-20, Hydrocephalus surgery Aug 19-20 & 20-21, Neurovascular surgery Aug 20-21
The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square is an internationally renowned hospital for clinical practice and world-class clinical research in neurosciences. It is closely associated with the University College London Institute of Neurology (UCL-ION; – IoN and UCL Neurosurgery). Together, the NHNN and ION are regarded as the premier neurosciences centre in the UK.
The Victor Horsley Department of Neurosurgery provides comprehensive elective and emergency (excluding trauma) neurosurgical services for the UCLH Trust, a large region encompassing North Central and West London and its associated hospitals, and the local community. In addition there are large numbers of National and International referrals to specialist Neurosurgical services.
These posts offer unique opportunities in each of these sub-specialty areas, given the large numbers of patients treated and the local academic environment. Each post will be a fixed term for 1 year, and will include both inpatient and outpatient care, as well as the opportunity for research.
Although each post is for a 1 year term, there may be opportunities to extend the duration, for example if pursuing an advanced degree. We are committed to providing a supportive learning environment in order to maximise the career potential of the successful candidate. Application is in process to have these Fellowship’s recognised by the Royal College of Surgeons of England. The successful candidates will be an integral part of the sub-specialty teams within Neurosurgery.
The candidates will have to be nearing completion of or have completed their neurosurgical training (e.g. peri-CCT in the UK). They should also be keen to develop their skills in a major centre of excellence and they must be eligible for GMC registration.
Responsibilities of the post will be neurosurgical sub-specialty specific and include participation in the speciality out-patient clinics, peri-operative and post-operative management of patients, and be an integral member of the speciality multidisciplinary team. There is an expectation that the post-holder would have dedicated time for supervision and development of trainee/junior doctors within the department, undertake research, publish in peer reviewed journals and present at National &/or International conferences. The post is an ideal stepping-stone for an experienced trainee to gain further experience in the sub-specialty of their interest.
