Senior Clinical Fellow in Reproductive Medicine (ST3+ equivalent)
The above post is available with immediate effect for 3 years fixed-term.
Saint Mary’s Hospital is a large teaching hospital which provides both secondary level care for its local population and tertiary level care for women across the North West of England. The Department of Reproductive Medicine carries out over 1,000 cycles of IVF for NHS patients and fee-paying patients each year along with cycles of ovulation induction, donor insemination, husband intra-uterine insemination and frozen embryo transfers.
The post-holder will cover week day outpatient clinic and theatre sessions. There is no on call commitment, but the post holder is expected to cover IVF work at week-ends approximately every fourth week-end. This involves outpatient work (patients in treatment), scans and small theatre sessions on Saturday/Sunday mornings. Whilst this post is not recognised for training, depending on the expectations of the appointee, we will endeavour to meet training needs. Individual doctors should discuss these with their supervising Consultant.
Experience will be gained in a wide range of practical procedures as well as overall clinical care of patients presenting with subfertility. We would expect the post holder to gain experience in infertility, andrology, ovulation induction, IVF and treatment using donor gametes. The post holder would be expected to carry out ultrasound scans and gain experience in scanning. They would also be trained to perform ultrasound guided egg collections and embryo transfers.
It is anticipated that the post holders will work at a level equivalent to that of the ST6-7 trainee. Applicants should have ideally at least 4 years experience at ST3 level in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, including at least six months experience within the NHS in the UK or equivalent health care system. MRCOG Part 2 is desirable.
Salary will be on the ST pay scale which ranges from £30,302 to £47,647 per annum.
