We are advertising for three, one year Clinical Fellow posts in Perioperative medicine for Older People undergoing Surgery (POPS). This is an established fellowship, now in its 7th year with excellent feedback and a track record in previous fellows progressing to substantive perioperative medicine consultant positions.
The post holder will work for the Perioperative medicine for Older People undergoing Surgery (POPS) team within the Department of Ageing and Health. POPS is an innovative and award winning service delivering Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment and optimisation (CGA) based care to older people undergoing elective and emergency surgery. The service operates from both Guy's and St Thomas' hospital sites.
The post holder will be involved in the delivery of preoperative CGA and optimisation, shared decision making and postoperative management of inpatients on surgical wards. The fellow will participate in outpatient clinics, ward rounds, board rounds and multidisciplinary team meetings. The on call commitment involves a combination of geriatric medicine on call and general medical acute on call but the option of an anaesthetic on call rota could be discussed.
Exciting opportunities to design and deliver education and training programmes to undergraduates and postgraduate doctors and allied health professionals exist within the role. All POPS fellows will be involved in quality improvement and/or research work where they will be supported to conduct, publish and present their projects. Furthermore training and experience is provided in management skills including service development and business planning.
The applicant may have a background in geriatric medicine, acute/general medicine or anaesthetics/intensive care provided they have MRCP.
