Job Details

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates to work as Clinical Fellows in our Adult Eating Disorders Ward.

This is for Full time (40 hours per week) post, at South West London and St George's Mental Health Trust, based at Springfield University Hospital, Tooting, London.

This post is being offered at the equivalent of Core Trainee level, and the appointment would be at a grade based on the qualifications and experience of the applicant.

The post will be initially for 6 months. But there is the possibility that the posts may be extended for a further 6 months, by mutual agreement and subject to availability and funding.

Main duties of the job

The post will also suit doctors seeking to enhance their portfolio to gain entry to the training grades and doctors already in non-training Grade positions e.g. SAS doctors or Trust Fellows who are seeking a formal educational structure to their posts.

Training, educational opportunities and appraisal will be available to successful candidates, including attendance at the weekly academic programme.

Out of hours on-call is not a compulsory part of the role, but there may be an opportunity to take part in the on-call rota, if desired and subject to availability. Participation in the Daytime Duty Doctor cover is expected.

If you are an energetic and motivated doctor who would like to join our service, then we would like to hear from you. We look forward to receiving your application.
