Applications are invited for Clinical Fellows (Higher) in Intensive Care Medicine on the John V Farman ICU at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.

These posts are available from 03 August 2016 for a period of 6 months in the first instance. Later start dates may be considered for suitable applicants.

The posts are part of the middle grade rota so candidates must have at least two years post-registration experience in an acute specialty which has regular contact with critically ill patients, of which at least 6 months should be at ST3 level or above and are particularly suitable for candidates considering out of program experience from their base specialty at intermediate, or advanced level of ICM training, or those requiring additional post-CCT experience in a major teaching hospital. Trainees from a Medicine, Anaesthesia, Emergency Medicine or surgical background are all equally welcome.

The John Farman ICU at Addenbrooke’s Hospital is a 20 bed mixed level 2/3 ICU, run by a group of twelve enthusiastic Consultants. The unit admits in excess of 1000 patients each year and we have a diverse and interesting case-mix that gives ample opportunity for high quality Critical Care training. We provide Critical Care services for all specialties except neuro-intensive care, major trauma and cardio-thoracics. This includes intensive care for a range of regional and national specialist services including liver, multi-visceral, small bowel and haematological transplantation. We achieve excellent quality and outcome measures. The intensive care team is also responsible for the Rapid Response Team which cares for deteriorating patients throughout the hospital; the ICU middle grade doctors also rotate through the RRT rota. Every Fellow is allocated an educational supervisor and there is an ongoing educational program.

As well as an amazing clinical experience, opportunities exist for training/experience in other areas of interest such as management, echocardiography, bronchoscopy and education. The intensive care unit is involved in a number of multi-centre research studies, as well as its own program of research, and trainees are expected in contribute to these areas.

All candidates will be required to demonstrate a working knowledge of the English language in a clinical environment.
