Clinical Fellow (ST3+) in Cardiology
We are seeking a clinical fellow fixed term contacts for 12 months to be reviewed at the end of the period to join existing middle grades working in our state-of-art cardiology facility in Hull. This post does not attract a National Training Number but does offer general and sub-speciality cardiology training and will help provide service delivery in this large tertiary referral centre based on the East Coast. We have a Cardiac Monitoring Unit, additional Cardiology Wards, and four dedicated cath labs. The post holder will participate in the cardiology on call rota.
We are a high volume PCI center and have a busy Primary Angioplasty Service serving a population of 1.2 million. We perform a large number of complex device implantations (AICD and CRTs) and undertake advanced electrophysiology procedures; in addition we have an active imaging department and depending on the skills of the successful candidates, there may be opportunities for suitable candidates to train in investigations such as stress echocardiography. Hull is a recently commissioned TAVI centre.
The post holder will be expected to participate in the (resident) on call rota for primary angioplasty and although experience in Coronary Angiography and Echocardiography are desirable, these are not essential and training will be provided in these areas. Previous experience in cardiology is essential, and MRCP or equivalent is desirable.
