Applications are invited to apply for a LAS ST3+ post in Cardiology at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
This is a fixed term post starting as soon as possible to the 1st August 2017.
This is a busy teaching hospital with affiliations to the University of Oxford, Health Education Thames Valley (HETV) and also the University of Buckingham Medical School (opened in January 2015). There are ample opportunities for career development, teaching experience and research.
We are a dynamic and supportive department and the posts offer broad and deep clinical exposure. The appointee will have excellent opportunity to gain experience in general medicine including participation in unselected medical on call on a 1:11 rota (with prospective cover) which attracts banding of 1B. Each specialty has access to state of the art care pathways, diagnostics and therapeutics.
There will be many opportunities for professional development and you will be allocated a clinical supervisor to help with a personal development portfolio. Applicants will also be supported in applying for National Training Numbers (NTN’s).
Along with specialty meetings, there are also regular departmental meetings, including a weekly grand round and regular audit and clinical governance sessions. Participation in these will be encouraged. There will be opportunities to work on audit and quality improvement projects. A study leave budget of £600 per year and allowance of 10 days will be available. An annual leave allowance of 27 days is given with compensatory rest days for on calls.
The successful applicant will be expected to participate in teaching both under and postgraduate students associated with the University of Buckingham and will also be expected to support colleagues doing these activities as part of his or her arranged job plan.
Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, in partnership with the University of Buckingham, is a University Teaching Hospital. This allows us to attract, train and retain the best doctors and contribute towards the financial stability of the organisation.
This is also an important step towards establishing the trust as a world-class centre for teaching excellence. The first students arrived on wards in May 2015 and by the beginning of 2017 a medical school building will have been constructed, which will also create exciting opportunities in the future for all staff in the fields of clinical research and education.
This exciting new phase will include opportunities for undergraduate and post graduate teaching, enhanced research facilities. A teaching and research background would be highly advantageous when applying for this position.
We believe the continued growth of the hospital will allow us to expand and improve our services to offer the very best care to the people of Milton Keynes, and beyond.
Located just 50 miles north of London, Milton Keynes has excellent access to the capital whilst being centrally located for Oxford and Cambridge and having ease of access to the north.
