Job Description

Applications are invited for two Trust Fellowship rotations in Paediatric Urology based at Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College London Hospitals.

The Departments of Paediatric Urology at Great Ormond Street Hospital and University College London Hospitals function as a virtual single unit across the two sites and this rotation offers an opportunity to experience the full breadth of Paediatric Urology. The posts are accredited by the Joint Committee of Paediatric Urology (JCPU) towards becoming a Fellow of the European Academy of Paediatric Urology (FEAPU). There is an active academic programme.

The rotational posts are at middle grade level and training will be offered alongside four London Deanery Trainees. The post holders are expected to contribute to the Paediatric Urology Specialist Trainee on call rota which operates across both sites.

The post is most suitable for candidates who wish to build on previous experience in paediatric urology or adult urology by spending two years in a busy clinical and academic department certified by the JCPU towards a FEAPU.

Applicants must have full registration with the GMC and fulfil the entry criteria for higher surgical training, which includes the satisfactory completion of basic surgical training (or equivalent). You must have passed the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) examination to apply for this post.
