Medical & Dental Recruitment
Clinical Development Fellow in Emergency Medicine
Based at Grange University Hospital, Cwmbran, South East Wales
Duration: Fixed Term Contract of 12 months initially
Anticipated Start Date: August 2021
These new 12 month posts are an innovation by the Emergency Medicine team at the Grange University Hospital for August 2021.
These clinical development fellows offer clinical experience in a busy and well supported Emergency Department with allocated time off the clinical rota for development in a number of innovative areas, including pre-hospital medicine, simulation and teaching.
They would particularly suit those who have passed their FY2 (or equivalent) competencies and have sound background knowledge of medicine, but may be undecided about their career pathway and/or would like to take time out of formal training. Within a supportive and professional team and environment, Clinical Fellows experience a very broad spectrum of clinical experience and a collaborative interface with wider associated specialties, aiming always to work together to provide an excellent patient experience.
The Clinical Fellow are afforded the same training opportunities as our training posts, with access to in house training – this includes protected monthly consultant led teaching days. Study leave is encouraged and the appointees will have the opportunity to perform an audit cycle and take part in case presentations.
The Clinical Development Fellows will have time off their clinical rota dedicated to a specific area of interest that they can arrange prior to starting the post. The department is able to offer opportunities in the following but could offer other areas for specific candidates:
Clinical Fellows (CF) in Emergency Medicine assume the responsibilities normally associated with junior grade (SHO level) appointment in Emergency Department (ED), and have access to a full range of IT facilities within the department.
The Emergency Unit is a busy department supported by four Minor Injury Units which together see 120,000 new patient attendances per year, the team working and friendly atmosphere ensures the efficacy of the department. 25% of attendances are within the paediatric age group. The co-location of the paediatric assessment unit with the paediatric emergency department enables close working with our Child Health colleagues. The department has an excellent reputation regionally for providing experience of most things you will find in the ‘Oxford Handbook’ in a year at the Grange University Hospital – particularly in the cases that pass through our Resus room. There is an emphasis on teaching and an innovative scenario-based adult & paediatric resuscitation/simulation teaching is run by the Emergency Department/ Paediatrics /Anaesthetics with all relevant specialties attending.
The department functions well as a team, currently comprising 19 enthusiastic Consultants (increasing to 24 with future appointments), supported by a combination of Associate Specialists, Specialty Doctors, Specialist Registrars, and junior doctors including these posts.
Although these Clinical Fellow posts are not recognised for training, they are afforded the same training opportunities as our training posts, with access to in house training. Study leave is encouraged. You will have the opportunities to perform an audit cycle and take part in case presentations.
The Emergency Department has recently relocated to the newly built Grange University Hospital. This purpose built Critical Care centre will house the Type 1 Emergency Department, Critical Care Unit and interventional specialities. It is supported by four Minor Injury Units across the region. Depending on the clinical model of the department some cross-site working may be required.
