Academic Clinical Fellowship (ACF) in Renal Medicine

Job Description

Academic Clinical Fellowship (ACF) in Renal Medicine The Hull York Medical School, in partnership with Health Education England Yorkshire & the Humber and the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust has developed an exciting pathway of academic clinical training opportunities Applications are now invited for an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Renal Medicine ST1-3 level in Hull from August 2017 OR an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Paediatrics at ST1-3 level in Hull and York from August 2017. Please read through all the relevant information available on the HEEYH Renal Medicine ACF Webpage and associated links before beginning your application (link available through Oriel). Applications open at 10am on the 10th October 2016 and the closing date is 4pm on the 7th November 2016. You will not be able to submit your application after this time. Please ensure that you have completed all the relevant sections of the application forms as missing information will deem your application incomplete and it will not be considered. You must apply via our online recruitment system, Oriel. Oriel can be accessed from the link provided. Registration is currently available for you to complete ahead of the application form opening. All interviews will be held on the 15th December 2016 at the Hull campus of The Hull York Medical School. Academic Clinical Fellowships (ACFs) are 3 year fixed-term national training posts. They attract an NTN(A) and trainees undertake 75 % clinical and 25% academic training over the term of the post. They are employed by the NHS Trust and have an honorary contract with the University at whose Medical School their academic research is supported. ACF trainees also undertake a Research Training Programme provided by the University for which funding is provided by NIHR. They also are eligible for a £1,000 bursary per year to support research training activity (e.g to attend academic conferences). ACF trainees would also normally complete and submit an external funding application for a research fellowship to enable them to complete a higher degree (PhD or research MD) following the completion of their ACF fixed-term post, which would be completed as Out-of-Programme-Research (OOPR). All Academic Clinical Fellowships are run-through posts, regardless of specialty. A trainee entering ACF at ST1 in a specialty with a Core Training period would therefore be guaranteed continued training to CCT in the eventual specialty, as long as they progress satisfactorily through their training. The qualifications and professional registration requirements plus other eligibility criteria can be found in the person specification. The person specification for this specialty is available from the Job Description or the Specialty Training website which can be accessed from Oriel. For more information about the recruitment process and for information on how to apply please see the attached Job Description and the HEEYH Renal Medicine ACF Webpage (link available through Oriel).
