Candidates are invited to apply for our new and exciting post aimed at senior trainees / post-CCT doctors in Anaesthesia/Critical Care Medicine. Our objective is to develop future leaders in this important emerging field. We offer a one-year fixed term contract with a start date of August 2023.
Based at University College Hospital, successful candidates will partake in an innovative programme aimed to improve a model of care for high-risk patients contemplating, undergoing and recovering from major surgery. Clinical duties include being the senior trainee on the Post Anaesthetic Care Unit (PACU) (level 2 and 3 care) and under the supervision of Critical Care consultants. This post will be an opportunity to be part of an innovative ward-based perioperative medicine team, managing high-risk surgical patients in conjunction with surgical teams. Fellows will also undertake supervised preoperative assessment clinic training and develop their clinical competencies in a wide range of technical and non-technical skills (Royal College of Anaesthetists Advanced level training). The fellow will be the senior doctor on site out of hours and will have responsibility for emergency care on PACU (including attending and leading cardiac arrests).
The key feature of the post is the opportunity to undertake the fully funded UCL MSc. in Perioperative Medicine.
In addition, fellows will have the opportunity to undertake supervised clinical research with departmental clinical scientists. Substantial time is allocated within the weekly programme for both MSc and research activities, built into a rolling programme of education and training. Additionally, opportunities exist for those wishing to accredit in trans-thoracic echocardiography (BSE level-1), participate in the development of master’s level education and a number of other translational research projects. The rota is banded at 1A.
