Fellow in Advanced Endoscopy and Gastroenterology

A Fellow is required in Advanced Endoscopy and Gastroenterology to start as soon as possible for 12 months, but with the option to extend the role to 24 months. This post is a new, second endoscopy fellow post that has been developed following the success and popularity of our existing fellow position.

The post provides the opportunity for the development of other areas of interest in Gastroenterology such as specialist IBD clinics, specialist hepatology clinics, capsule endoscopy and research in endoscopy.

The post consists of 50% service endoscopy and 50% training and development in advanced endoscopy and others aspects of gastroenterology that will be tailored to the successful candidate. Applicants will only be considered if they are able to perform independent colonoscopy (including level 2 polypectomy) and have JAG certification (or equivalent) for upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and colonoscopy.
