Job Description

Applications are invited for a junior Clinical Fellow in Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgery (ST1-2 equivalent), based at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children. This post is for a period of 12 months from August 2020.

Candidates who are interested in Paediatric Medicine or Paediatric Surgical Specialties, especially Paediatric Orthopaedics, awaiting training rotations may find this placement particularly useful.

The successful candidate will become part of a dynamic multidisciplinary team and gain experience in all aspects of Paediatric Trauma and Orthopaedics within one of the largest Paediatric Orthopaedic units in the country. Bristol Royal Hospital for Children is the regional Paediatric Major Trauma Centre for South West England and was recently rated as Outstanding by the CQC.

We aim to provide a wealth of opportunity for the candidate to gain experience in managing many paediatric orthopaedic conditions including development hip dysplasia, complex foot deformities, neuromuscular conditions, skeletal dysplasias and limb deformities with exposure to frame management. There is an active clinical research and audit program with several recent trainees publishing in peer reviewed journals and there is research time available for this.

In addition to paediatric orthopaedic experience, the successful applicant will contribute to the paediatric general surgery rota out of hours. Applicants should be reassured that paediatric venepuncture & cannulation are not essential skills; a phlebotomy service is provided and senior support is available when required.

This is a service post and is presently not recognised for training purposes.
