Applications are invited for several posts in a newly-created surgical speciality rotation at core trainee level. The posts are for up to eighteen months and will rotate on a four monthly basis through a variety of surgical specialities:
• Breast surgery
• Colorectal surgery
• Trauma & Orthopaedics/Ortho-Geriatrics
• Vascular surgery
• Upper GI surgery
• Plastic Surgery
The specialities will be discussed and arranged with successful candidates but all posts will include on-call cross cover.
These posts are designed for post foundation doctors who are preparing for core surgical training applications. The posts do not have formal deanery approval but all successful applicants will be allocated an educational supervisor for the year and a clinical supervisor for each post.
Applicants will be expected to subscribe to ISCP and to keep a surgical logbook. Successful candidates will be monitored for progression throughout the year by regular ARCP type reviews. Each candidate will be expected to complete a full audit cycle and enthusiasm for research opportunities on offer will be viewed favourably. The goal of the rotation is for candidates to gain success at the next round of Core Surgical Training applications.
Training opportunities will include clinical experience in each specialty, attendance at outpatient clinics and operating lists and teaching of undergraduate and foundation doctors.
For each successful candidate, we would be keen to sponsor an MsC in surgery with the University of Manchester or a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education. This sponsorship will be on a pro rata basis and is dependent on the candidate fulfilling the duration of the appointment.
Annual and study leave are flexible but subject to the needs of the department. We proactively encourage successful candidates to apply for suitable external course such as ATLS, CCrISP and the MRCS examination and applications for study leave for these will be looked upon favourably.
