The aim of the Clinical Development Fellow Programme is to either support overseas doctors with their transition into the NHS or for UK trained doctors to further develop a portfolio of evidence within surgical specialties.

Clinical Fellows will have the opportunity to sit their Royal College Examinations, which they must self-fund. Clinical Fellows will stay in the programme for up to 2 years. It is expected that the doctor would remain with the Trust for a minimum of 18 months. At the end of the programme, all Clinical Fellows, whether UK or Overseas, will have a full portfolio of evidence of clinical experience, appraisal and assessment and, if they chose to take them, Royal College exams.

As for UK applicants, oversees doctors will be responsible for their own relocation and living expenses.

As a Clinical Development Fellow at the Trust you will be working with a team of Consultants, Specialist Trainees, Core Trainees and Foundation Year Trainees. Each post has a generic clinical component in the Surgical Division with 4 monthly rotations (following supernumerary sign off) within General Surgery (including sub-specialties), Trauma and Orthopaedics and Anaesthetics / Critical Care based on availability and interest. Please note not all of our Clinical Development Fellows posts attract an out-of-hours element.

All doctors will be given a full medical education programme. This will be tailored and matched to each doctors training and career progression needs. The programme will be under full programme management of Training Programme Director and other senior clinicians and under the direct authority of the Medical Director.
