The Role

Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Clinical Fellow in Medical Education & Emergency Medicine

Fixed-term 12 month post (with possible extension)

£32,478 - £51,069 (depending on experience) with a 50% banding supplement

We are looking for both Junior and Senior Clinical Fellows to come and join our enthusiastic Emergency Medicine team at Homerton University Hospital.

You can join us in an 80% clinical/20% medical education split role as a junior clinical fellow (ST1-3 equivalent), or 70% clinicial/30% education or 60/40 for senior clinical fellows (ST4+).

You will have the opportunity to work in our established teaching programmes for medical students, nurses, doctors and allied professionals in the ED, and to develop innovative teaching strategies. The Homerton has an active simulation centre with many courses and in situ simulation scenarios where you can be trained and join the faculty.

There is an opportunity to undertake a funded PGCert in Education in Clinical Contexts through the apprenticeship scheme as part of this post, delivered through QMUL.

This post is suitable for a year out of training, or potentially as an OOPT (pending approval). It is well suited to those looking for a year after foundation training to gain experience in EM or to those working towards CESR route entry to the specialist register, an area in which we have a great track record of success. The CESR programme can involve support with FRCEM final exam progress, QIP, ultrasound sign off and secondment or rotation to gain experience in the acute care common stem specialties. If you are interested in this then get in touch and discuss what you need and do apply to this post.

Homerton University Hospital Emergency Department is an inner city unit that saw over 129,000 patients in 2019/20. We were proud to be given a rating of 'outstanding' for the Emergency Department from the CQC, including the following comments "The staff we spoke with were proud to work for the A&E department and felt there was a 'can do' attitude within the team. There were processes in place to monitor the quality of the service and respond to areas highlighted as requiring improvement. We saw that learning was shared among the staff team regarding Never Events, incidents and complaints within the department and across the hospital. Staff were encouraged and enabled to attend training courses and further their skills and knowledge to improve the service provided to patients." The department is a trauma unit and was the designated hospital for receiving athletes from the 2012 Olympic Games.
