Job overview

UHDB require a number of Junior Clinical Fellow posts in Emergency Medicine at the Queens Hospital Burton site. These posts are intended to provide the clinician with post-Foundation experience in Emergency Medicine.

We have recently undergone a period of redesign and refurbishment of our on site Minor Injuries department offering a more streamlined process of managing all walk in patients through appropriate signposting and subsequent management.

Main duties of the job

The post would be ideal for those who are:

  • Considering a career in Emergency Medicine or Acute Specialties and looking for the support and training required to successfully apply for a training post.
  • Planning to pursue a career in Emergency Medicine or Acute Specialties and looking to undertake their training at Queens Hospital Burton via the Certificate of Eligibility for Specialist Registration (CESR) route.
  • Undecided on a career path and are looking to undertake an additional acute post prior to future applications.

We border the National Forest and we are in easy reach of the Peak District, offering outstanding natural beauty. Centrally located, we have excellent transport links to the rest of the country including major cities.

Detailed job description and main responsibilities

These posts will include clinical experience in the Emergency Department as well as specific teaching, training and support depending on career aspirations.
