Job summary

Specialty Trainee / Senior Clinical Fellow in Intensive Care Medicine (ST3-7). This is an opportunity for an anaesthetic or ICM speciality doctor or trainee, to join the team at Hammersmith Hospital ICU to actively develop their clinical skills and experience in a tertiary centre. The department prides itself on fostering a supportive and collaborative environment for junior medical colleagues to develop. Notwithstanding the clinical experience particularly around complex medical patients with critical illness, the successful candidate will work in a department that is particularly active in research, academia, teaching and quality improvement where opportunities for participation in such activities will be afforded and encouraged. The post would suit speciality doctors at senior clinical fellow level, wishing to obtain or further existing clinical experience whilst developing non-clinical facets.

Main duties of the job

The fellow will join a team of 14 Residents (SHOs) and 8 Middle Grade (Registrars) doctors.

The Registrar rota, which the fellow will work on is a 1 in 7 rota with prospective cover (nights and long days). The successful candidate is expected to work on the registrar rota and as such possess the skills commensurate to that of a speciality trainee in Intensive Care Medicine (including independent airway skills).

The shifts are from 08:00am (0800 for Registrars) -1800pm short days or from 08:00am to 21:00pm long days or 20:00pm to 09:00am nights

There will be scope to facilitate the fellow to develop non-clinical skills in parallel with the clinical experience e.g. in research, Q.I., audit and education.
