Applications are invited for a 12 month fellowship programme in Regional Anaesthesia to start from August 2018.

The fellowship post would suit applicants who have completed or nearly completed a recognised Anaesthetic specialist training programme, including someone who already possesses a CCT in Anaesthesia. The posts offer the opportunity to develop and increase Anaesthetic experience in the above specialties prior to taking up a consultant post. The level of supervision will be tailored to the fellow’s prior experience with the ultimate aim of independent practice with distant supervision, so to work at junior consultant level with senior consultant support.  The Subspecialty Fellows participate in a non-resident on call rota on a 1:8 frequency.

The NHS department enjoys close links with the University Of Cambridge Department Of Anaesthesia and there are opportunities for the Subspecialty Fellows to become involved in research and other forms of career development as appropriate to the individual. It is expected that the Fellow will play an active role in non-clinical activities in their specialty of interest as part of their professional development, and will be assigned an educational supervisor who will regularly review these.
