Clinical Fellow ST3+ in Cardiology

The Cardiology Specialty at North Bristol NHS Trust are seeking to recruit a full-time Clinical Fellow for a 12 month period from August 2019. This post will provide excellent opportunities for gaining experience in Cardiology, and we are seeking a doctor who has a real interest in the Specialty.

As is consistent with this post, it is neither Royal College nor Postgraduate approved, but is educationally sound and well supported. In particular, there will be training in transthoracic echocardiography, which will put the successful candidate in an excellent position to sit their BSE written examination. The postholder will also gain experience in the assessment of inpatients with a broad variety of acute and chronic cardiac conditions, as well as being responsible for their own outpatient clinics.

It is expected that the successful candidate will apply in the ST3 recruitment round for 2020. Full registration with the GMC is essential.

The successful candidate will be based in the state of the art Brunel Building at Southmead Hospital, which was opened in May 2014. Located in North Bristol, there is easy access to/from the M4/M5/M32 motorways and public transport. For those who cycle, Bristol boasts excellent cycling facilities and was chosen as England's first Cycling City in 2008.

In 2014 Bristol was nominated by the Times as the best city to live in the UK, citing "one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, varied and beautiful housing stock, decent schools, buzzy culture and night life, and access to some fantastic countryside". Bristol was the European Green Capital in 2015, and has theatres, shopping centres, an historical harbour-side and an array of annual festivals and events, including the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and the Bristol Harbour Festival.

Closing date: 20th June 2019
