Online applications are invited senior fellow in hand surgery commencing July/August 2019. This post is fixed term for 6/12 months


We are looking to appoint a highly experienced and motivated individual to the post of senior clinical fellow (aimed at Year 6+ Specialist Registrars) in elective and trauma hand orthopaedic surgery.  The post will be ideal for those who wish to enhance their operative skills and gain further specialist education in trauma and elective hand surgery in final preparation for their appointment to the consultant grade. The fellow is expected to provide independent surgical sessions and to work closely alongside the hand team and extended scope physiotherapists.


The department consists of four consultant orthopaedic hand, elbow and shoulder surgeons. The applicant must have gained, or be within 6 months of attaining, their CCT and is looking to enhance their surgical experience. Participation in the senior on-call trauma rota and planned weekend elective operating sessions may be required.


The successful candidate will be expected to be proficient in minor hand surgery. Candidates are required to submit a logbook summary of Hand trauma and elective hand procedures prior to shortlisting.


The Fellow is given active support with clinical research and will be expected to present and publish this work as appropriate. This post does not attract an NTN and does not lead to the award of CCT, requiring additional experience. Prospective educational approval from PMETB will need to be sought if time in this post is required to count for CCT.  Possession of FRCS (Tr&Orth) or equivalent is an essential requirement of the post.


Appointment will be made under local contractual terms and conditions of service for Trust appointed (non-training fellow doctors and dentists) which will be published and available at time of offers.


Grades for Trust appointed (non-training) fellows will be paid a basic salary at a nodal pay point linked to the grade, at the rate set out in the National Medical and Dental pay circular. Basic salary detailed below plus any additional remuneration (as applicable) for hours set out in the doctors work schedule (e.g. additional hours, weekend allowance, and any hours which attract enhanced pay)


Basic Salary MT04        £46,208
