Clinical Fellow (Higher) in Neurosciences and Trauma Critical Care (NCCU) 2017

New higher clinical fellow posts on NCCU.

 

Applications are invited for a Clinical Fellow (Higher) in Neurosciences and Trauma Critical Care, commencing from February or August 2018 (other start dates will be considered). These posts are particularly suitable for candidates considering an out of program experience from their base specialty at intermediate, or advanced level of ICM training, or for specialists requiring post-CCT experience in neurosciences critical care or major trauma critical care.

NCCU is a 23-bed critical care unit providing specialist neuro-intensive care and general intensive care facilities for regional (East of England) trauma, neurology, stroke and neurosurgical services covering a population of approximately 2.5 million.

NCCU is recognised by the Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine (UK) for all levels of ICM training and specialised ICM training.

Clinical Fellows practise alongside ST and academic trainees on the NCCU and come from a wide range of backgrounds (including anaesthesia, intensive care, neurosurgery, neurology, emergency medicine) and have a range of clinical expertise.

Although it is desirable that applicants to this post have previous critical care experience, the duties of post holders are adapted to their learning needs and as such those with extensive and less extensive critical care experience can be accommodated. These posts provide outstanding learning opportunities in specialist neurosciences critical care and trauma care, as well as a good grounding in the more generic aspects of critical care. These are full-time clinical posts.

In addition to its clinical functions, NCCU provides the infrastructure for world leading research in brain injury, neurosciences and intensive care medicine, and ample research opportunities are available to prospective applicants.

NIHR ICM Fellowships at Cambridge

Why do intensive care medicine anywhere else when you can do it at one of the best universities in the world?

We are delighted to offer a NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Intensive Care Medicine at Cambridge. We are looking for the UK’s brightest and best and can accommodate trainees from any ICU partner speciality as well as single-speciality trainees.

From the NIHR recruitment website: NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowships are specialty training posts that incorporate academic training. NIHR Academic Clinical Fellows (ACFs) spend 75% of their time undertaking specialist clinical training and 25% undertaking research or educationalist training and are only available to medically qualified candidates and are aimed at those who, at the early stages of their specialty training, show outstanding potential for a career in academic medicine or dentistry.

The duration of an ACF is for a maximum of 3 years (4 years for GPs). During this time, alongside clinical training, ACFs will be able to develop their academic skills and be supported in preparing an application for a Research Training Fellowship (to undertake a higher research degree) or an application for a place on an educational programme (leading to a higher degree). Success in these applications is defined as the end point of an ACF.
2016 NIHR ACF recruitment is now open. Please contact Dr Charlotte Summers (@charlot_summers) for further information and informal discussion.
