Clinical Teaching Fellow in Vascular

Job Description

St. George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the regional specialist care provider for south west London, Surrey and beyond. The trust provides a high quality, comprehensive range of health services from leading edge tertiary and trauma care to community services, delivered from 2 hospital sites, St.George’s Hospital in Tooting and Queen Mary’s Hospital in Roehampton, and from St John’s Therapy Centre, 11 health centres and clinics, schools, nursing homes and people’s own homes. The trust also manages the healthcare service at HMP Wandsworth. With national and regional referrals added to our local 35m catchment, we serve a population of around 5m. We employ around 8,000 staff.


Clinical Teaching Fellow in Vascular Surgery

This exciting role will provide you with the opportunity to develop your teaching and research skills, and enhance your understanding of all aspects of medical education. You will be primarily involved in teaching undergraduate medical students during their vascular surgery attachment. Teaching will be varied in style and it is expected that you will develop your teaching skills to facilitate small group teaching, deliver lectures to larger audiences, and teach clinical skills at the bedside. You will also have the opportunity to participate in teaching allied professionals and postgraduate medical trainees. It is expected that 50% of your time is spent delivering and preparing undergraduate teaching.

In order to maintain your clinical practice there will be regular clinical duties, which will include a 1:8 vascular registrar on-call, 1:8 registrar of the week, and participation in outpatient clinics and theatre sessions. Your teaching commitment will be equally split with your clinical commitment. The job is EWTD compliant.

During this fixed term one year post you will be strongly encouraged to undertake a formal medical educational qualification, such as the Postgraduate Certificate in Healthcare and Biomedical Education (PgCertHBE) course held at St George’s University of London. St George’s also has an active simulation centre which teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate trainees, and if required, you will be given further training in medical simulation.

In addition, the vascular surgery department has a world-renowned research profile and you will be supported and strongly encouraged to participate in the research activity of the department. The opportunity will exist to extend this post to perform a higher research degree.

This job would be suitable for either full time or as a part time job share post.
