University College Hospital
1 year - 1-2 posts
We offer a 1 year, highly competitive regional anaesthesia fellowship. It is suitable for higher trainees looking for increasing their number and variety of nerve blocks. We do primarily upper and lower limb orthopaedics, breast surgery and thoracics. We do a full range of nerve blocks including continuous nerve blocks, and have a block room that runs mornings Mon-Fri. Fellows will be expected to take part in ongoing research, as well as setup and gain funding for their own trials.
Jobs are advertised annually on NHS Jobs in summer. A full job description will be made available on that site. Please set up a job alert on NHS jobs for these applications.
We currently have posts filled until August 2022, applications for the next period will be advertised Summer 2021.
I receive a large number of enquiries for this post, so have prepared a list of the most common queries.
1) Q:Can you tell me what the visa requirements are for working in the UK?
A: I cannot help you with information about Visas/qualification equivalency etc, as this will be done by our medical staffing. Please contact them when the next application round is open.I will not respond to requests for information of how to apply.
2) Q: When is the next application round open?
A: As above, the next round will be open some point in summer 2021. Please set up an alert on NHS Jobs for uclh anaesthesia clinical fellow posts, and check back regularly on that site.
3) Q: Please can you look at my CV and let me know if I'd be eligible?
A: Application is by online form, I'm afraid we can't review CVs before the application process is open.
4) Q: I am a UK trainee in a rotation, am I eligible to apply.
A: Yes. The post is for one year, so previous applicants have negotiated 6 months in program/OOPT, and 6 months out of program. The full year is expected.
5) Q: I am a consultant already, can I apply for subspeciality training in regional anaesthesia?
A: I will prioritise applications from trainees or those recently completing their training as this is designed for candidates looking for subspeciality skills as well as to deliver a research workload. There is an busy overnight on call commitment in a tertiary referral teaching hospital.
