Job Title: UCL-Wellington Clinical Fellowships
Description: About the role University College London (UCL) and the Wellington Hospital are recruiting to a Clinical Fellowship scheme which offers candidates an opportunity to study for a PhD in UCL’s Institute of Cardiovascular Science, while working at the UK's largest private hospital providing specialist complex care. There are two Clinical Fellowships available, one with a solely cardiovascular focus and the second within a neurological theme. Clinical Duties and Responsibilities Clinically based at The Wellington Hospital in St John’s Wood London, part of HCA Healthcare UK, these Clinical Fellows will commence a programme to undertake a period of basic and/or clinical cardiovascular research at UCL prior to continuation of specialist training. This is a tremendous opportunity to jointly develop a research career while working between two prestigious organisations. Details of the Clinical Fellowships are outlined below. 1. One Clinical Fellowship will be available to cardiologists looking to undertake an exclusively cardiovascular PhD. They will have the opportunity to select a research project and a supervisor from across the range of disciplines in the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science (ICS) which includes dedicated research departments in Preclinical and Fundamental science, Clinical Science, Children’s Cardiovascular Disease and Population Science and Experimental Medicine. The Institute also hosts the MRC Unit of Lifelong Health and Ageing and the Hatter Cardiovascular Institute. Working within the Cardiology Department at The Wellington Hospital, the clinical commitment is 120 hours per 4 weeks which will include a combination of weekdays, weekends, and bank holidays. 2. A second Clinical Fellowship will be awarded to a Neurologist who will undertake research at The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute. This Clinical Fellowship will be focused specifically on neuroprotection following ischaemic stroke, an exciting opportunity for a cross-discipline PhD. The Clinical Fellow will work within the Neuro Rehabilitation Department at The Wellington Hospital with a clinical commitment of 120 hours every 4-weeks, made up of mix of 24-hour, 12-hour and 8-hour shifts, which will include a combination of weekdays, weekends, and bank holidays. Application criteria: We welcome all applicants who are medically qualified with the appropriate clinical experience, GMC registered and have MRCP. The scheme is open only to UK/EEA nationals due to funding restrictions. In addition, they must meet UCL’s entrance requirements for PhD registration. Those applicants who meet both standards will be invited to interview. Study and any other related enquiries should be made to Professor Derek Yellon, Director of the Hatter Cardiovascular Institute, UCL. Employment related enquiries should be made to Dr Damian Sczudlo, Head of Resident Doctors, The Wellington Hospital: )
