Applications are invited for Clinical Fellows (Higher) in Intensive Care Medicine, starting from May 2018 and August 2018 for a period of 6-12 months. Further start dates may also become available.

The posts are part of the middle grade rota so candidates must have at least two years post-registration experience in acute specialties which have regular contact with critically ill patients, ideally with at least 6 months at ST3 level or above.

These posts 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 Surgery 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 1000 patients annually including 100 liver transplants per year. We provide Critical Care services for all specialties except neuro-intensive care, major trauma and cardio-thoracics. 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; ICU middle grade doctors also rotate through the RRT rota. Every trainee is allocated an educational supervisor and there is an on-going educational program which has received excellent feedback recently.

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 welcome to contribute to this work.

The applicant must have demonstrable skills in listening, reading, writing and speaking in English that enable effective communication about medical topics with patients and colleagues, as set out in the GMC’s Good Medical Practice (2013). Non-UK applicants must possess the IELTS exam before obtaining a GMC licence to practice.

For Tier 2 and Tier 5 Visas, the trust abides by the regulations laid down by the GMC and British Government. Applications from candidates who require a work permit to work in the UK may not be considered if there are a sufficient number of other suitable candidates.

Please note there may be opportunities to rotate to our sister neurocritical care unit (NCCU) by mutual agreement.
