2 Posts - Clinical Fellow in Renal Medicine and Transplantation (ST3+ equivalent)
These posts are available from February/March 2017
The post offers an excellent opportunity to join a center of excellence for Renal Medicine training. The appointee will join a team of Renal Medicine Specialist Registrars and post CCT Fellows in the Renal Department of the Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust. This is a tertiary referral, academic renal unit providing renal services to North Central London. The post offers excellent clinical experience in dialysis, transplantation, chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury (AKI). The successful applicant will rotate through the Acute Kidney Unit where high dependency care is provided to acute transplant recipients, those stepping down from ITU and to patients with AKI transferred from other trusts in North Central London as part of the AKI Network. They will also attend a variety of clinics including dialysis, transplantation, low clearance, general and sub-speciality nephrology e.g. vasculitis. Opportunities will also be available to attend other clinics including tubular and stone disease, maternal nephrology, amyloid, difficult hypertension, HIV nephrology and uronephrology. They will have the opportunity to perform native and transplant renal biopsies under consultant supervision and will be expected to participate in the registrar on call and night shift rota, for which they will be paid a supplement accordingly.
The appointee will have full access to the extensive academic and educational programmes that the department offers. The clinical department works in collaboration with the UCL Centre for Nephrology. Research opportunities are offered by several groups with established interests in renal tubular pathophysiology and stones, renal genetics, renal bone disease, cardiovascular disease, dialysis, autoimmunity and fibrosis.
The post is not officially recognised for Renal specialist registrar training but the appointee will not be disadvantaged in terms of training because of this.
