Acute Senior Health Division
A Clinical Fellow position at ST3+ level has arisen. The post is designed to deliver clinical care in the Acute Senior Health unit ( ASHU) at St George’s Hospital.
This represents an opportunity for an enthusiastic doctor to join a dynamic clinical team in Acute Senior health medicine within a new unit. The appointee will join a team of 2 FY1’s, one FY2, 2 CMT’s, 1 GIM/Rheumatology ST3+, one other clinical fellow and work with 3 consultants in a hugely dynamic and supported environment. There is daily consultant presence on the unit and a close working relationship with the multidisciplinary team including daily board rounds and twice weekly targeted MDT meetings for our 32 bedded unit.
The acute senior health team thrives to provide high quality care to elderly patients and by working closely with the MDT aims to allow patients to leave hospital at the earliest opportunity once they no longer require inpatient care.
The post holder will follow the acute on-call rota which is a 1:19 rota based on AMU and the rest of the time will be spent on normal working days (8.30am-5pm) on the ward.
There will be the opportunity to develop other areas of interest, taking part in geriatric and other specialty clinics (subject to specialty approval) as well as getting involved in teaching of under- and post-graduate or participation in audit and service improvement projects. With expansion of service there may be further opportunities to gain experience in comprehensive geriatric assessment in accident and emergency and the acute medical unit.
There is organised teaching on a weekly basis at our departmental meeting, a weekly journal club and x-ray meeting and weekly grand round presentations.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
