Consultant Tropical Dermatologist

This post is based at the Hospital for Tropical Diseases (HTD) within the Division of Infection at University College London Hospitals, running the specialist clinics for the diagnosis and management of travel-related or HIV-associated skin diseases.

This post has arisen through the retirement of Professor Vega-Lopez. The post holder will be based in the UK’s only specialist tropical dermatology clinic.. This clinic is nationally commissioned for the management of imported tropical and other infectious conditions including leishmaniasis, endemic mycoses, mycobacterial and other exotic infections. In addition, the post-holder will run the specialist HIV dermatology clinic for opportunistic infections and other HIV-related conditions.

The post-holder will oversee the delivery of tropical dermatology management both through service and training junior doctor and nursing members of staff to deliver the same quality of service using clinic-based teaching, audit and assessment. The consultant will, through research and audit, implement best practices in the clinic and develop a strategy for quality improvement within the clinic.

The post-holder will work closely with consultants and other healthcare staff running the leprosy/leishmaniasis clinic; there may be opportunities for cross-cover and service reorganisation. In addition, the consultant will be asked to provide dermatology support to doctors in the HTD walk-in clinic.

The consultant will be supported by senior nursing staff and will contribute to the teaching of tropical dermatology to undergraduates, specialist trainee doctors from within the Trust, London and across the UK and participate in the monthly tropical/infectious histopathology MDT, as well as regular Infection Division audit and governance meetings.
The post holder will be expected to deliver a total 3.0 PAs, with 2.5 direct clinical care PAs and 0.5 SPAs to support research, training and development activities.

It is anticipated that the successful candidate will take up their appointment on 1 Dec 2017
