The Department of Paediatric Intensive Care at Great Ormond Street Hospital, UK invites applications for Clinical Fellows for training in Paediatric Intensive care Medicine.
The paediatric intensive care facility at Great Ormond Street Hospital is the largest in the United Kingdom with over 1000 general and 800 cardiac admissions per year.
The posts available are predominantly PICU/NICU roles. There are also a small number of roles available that may rotate through the intensive care departments (PICU, NICU, CICU) and CATS (Childrens’ Acute Transport Service). If you have specific training requirements, we are happy to consider you for a specific tailored rotation through the ICU, which can be discussed at interview.
Our intensive care fellows are under the supervision of a team of consultants in each ICU area. Training is competency based and a full PICM training programme is built into the rotation. These posts are also accredited for training by the College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM) of Australia and New Zealand. The training programme is designed to prepare you for a career in PICM as an excellent clinician, leader and thinker.
Applicants should have completed a minimum of 2 years of training at the equivalent of specialist registrar level (4 years post-graduation) in either paediatrics or anaesthesia, and have experience in a critical care field. This equates to at least 6 months experience in a level 3 Neonatal unit for paediatricians or 6 months paediatric anaesthesia or adult ICU for anaesthetists. Where applicable, it is an essential requirement that applicants have completed and passed the IELTS examination at the time of submitting an application, to the required passmark standard for GMC Registration.
