Imperial College Healthcare Surgical Rotation Programme

Applications are invited for a 1-2 year rotation through surgical specialties in our Trust, including our Major Trauma Service. These are not accredited training posts but will have excellent training opportunities and full access to all our educational resources.   The posts are suitable for individuals who want to pursue a career in surgery and wish to increase their knowledge and experience in preparation for gaining a National Training Number in their chosen surgical specialty. For candidates who only require a 6 month placement in a specific speciality, this may also be possible.

Candidates should have finished their foundation programme. There will be excellent opportunities for research and audit projects. There is the option for doing a part-funded integrated MSc in Surgical Sciences at Imperial College. Further research options are available, such as Clinical Research Fellow posts, which are aimed at delivering a MD or PhD. There are posts available now and from August 2018.

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust is the UK’s first Academic Health Sciences Centre. It has an international reputation for high quality clinical performance, innovation and research excellence. Successful candidates would be expected to contribute to this reputation by their clinical and academic performance.
