REF NO: 290-TDPB101

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust has an exciting opportunity for applicants to apply for a Fellowship (SpR Equivalent) in Microsurgical Reconstruction to join the Trust Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

There are 2 posts; one is due to commence immediately and one will commence in July 2017; both are for a fixed term period of 12 months, subject to satisfactory review after 6 months.

The Department specializes in microsurgical reconstruction and is responsible for the care of Plastic Surgery patients, and will provide a wide range of experience. The main areas are head and neck reconstruction, breast reconstruction and extremity reconstruction. There is also increasing activity at the Trust’s Level 1 Major Trauma Centre at St Mary’s Hospital.

The Department is responsible for the care of general Plastic Surgery patients with an emphasis on tertiary referrals. The bulk of the work includes microsurgical reconstruction and the department undertakes between 175 and 200 major cases per year, the majority of which involve free flaps. The areas of interest are Head and Neck, Breast and Extremity reconstruction. There are specialist clinics set up for multi-disciplinary care. The post-holder is encouraged to partake in projects that have been established, as well as newer studies, and present the results at local and national meetings.

The Microsurgical Reconstructive fellows (SpR equivalent) will be doing the same work as the Specialist Registrars. There is currently 1:9 on call with prospective cover. The post does not have Post Graduate Dean approval but has been recognised by the SAC so that the successful applicants can prospectively apply for the time to be recognised for training.

Applicants must possess the MRCS or equivalent exam. Candidates must be eligible for registration or hold full registration with the GMC. Microsurgical experience such as previous fellowship is desirable but not essential.

For informal discussions or further information, interested candidates should contact:

Mr Navid Jallali (( Email address removed ) (clinical lead))

Mr Simon Wood (( Email address removed ))

Closing Date: Sunday 30th October 2016
