An exciting opportunity has arisen to gain comprehensive experience and training in Trauma & Orthopaedics at University College Hospital. Applications are invited for a Clinical Orthopaedic Fellow (at registrar level).

UCH Fellowships are clinically-based specialist posts intended to give candidates hands on experience and a wide exposure to current techniques in trauma and orthopaedic surgery. UCLH has a busy trauma operative workload is delivered on all day Consultant supervised trauma lists during the week, with excellent experience to be gained in routine and complex cases. You will also have the opportunity to gain exposure to our highly specialist elective workload delivered by Consultants who are experts in their given specialist areas.

In addition, the Fellow will be invited to be involved in the department’s academic research projects, which can be led by the fellow based on their individual areas of interest. One such example is the recent improvement project on reducing the length of stay for patients with fractured neck of femurs. 

As each of our consultants’ has their specific sub-specialty interest, the candidate may be able to preference the area of their sub-specialty interest to match that of their consultant supervisor (depending on availability), giving the fellow exposure to clinics and elective operating in that particular area.

The Fellow will be working alongside a team of sixteen consultant surgeons, who collaborate closely with musculoskeletal radiologists, anaesthetists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.

The candidate must be post MRCS, have at least 36 months Orthopaedic experience and have obtained full registration with the General Medical Council of the United Kingdom.
