Clinical Fellow (ST3+ Level) in Cardiology, specialising in Cardiomyopathy
12 Month clinical fellowship (ST3+ level) in Inherited Cardiovascular Disease
About the vacancy:
As part of a very successful training programme at the Barts Heart Centre, the Cardiomyopathy service is pleased to offer a 12 month clinical fellowship in inherited and acquired heart muscle diseases.
Barts Heart Centre is home to the merged cardiac units, which were recently based at The London Chest Hospital, St. Bartholomew’s Hospital and The Heart Hospital. It is the heart attack centre for the region and provides interventional cardiology services, specialist cardiac imaging, electrophysiology services including device implants and ablation therapy for arrhythmia, grown up congenital heart disease, heart muscle disease and heart failure services. This post will provide exposure to a wide variety of Inherited and Acquired Cardiomyopathies and advanced specialist training.
This post provides training in inherited cardiac conditions (ICC) for a senior (ST3+ level or post-CCT) cardiology fellow and is ideal for cardiology fellows at the end or shortly after the completion of their training who would like an out-of-programme training opportunity in Cardiomyopathies. We expect post holders to undertake the same educational obligations as their colleagues.
