Applications are invited for the post of  Senior Clinical Fellow (equivalent to Senior Registrar ST 6-7) in Gynaecological Oncology at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust (GSTFT) hospitals to commence from August 2018 for one year. The duties are those of an ST 6-7 year  at Guy’s and St Thomas’s hospitals with RCOG training recognition and an EWTD compliant rota.

GSTFT is a Cancer Centre within the London Cancer Alliance. The Gynaecological Oncology unit sees approximately 300 new patients per year and has three Gynaecological Oncology Consultants. The successful candidate will get ample opportunity to improve their surgical skills in open and laparoscopic surgery and will primarily train with the Gynaecological Oncology unit. The Oncology department has extensive facilites for the administration of chemotherapy and radiotherapy and they will work in this multidisciplinary environment. The successful applicant will be expected to attend outpatient clinics and operating lists where they will be taught the fundamentals of Gynaecological Cancer surgery. The unit is accredited for sub-speciality training in Gynaecological-Oncology with the RCOG. This post will be ideal for any of the candidates who are keen to get more surgical experience or wish to pursue subspecialty training subsequently. It would provide excellent preparation and probable research exemption for a subspecialty training post in Gynaecological Oncology. The successful candidate will be expected to develop and pursue a research project and conduct audit. There will be opportunity to do colposcopy training and/or complete the ATSM in Gynaecological Oncology with the RCOG following approval with their local deanery.

The successful applicant will be expected to participate on the on-call rota for ST6-7  Obstetrics & Gynaecology trainees. However, they will spend their majority time training with the Gynaecological Oncology team during day-time hours. The unit has an excellent reputation for education with protected time for teaching and consultant-led educational supervision. It delivers over 6,500 women per year and has an equally busy Gynaecology unit seeing 12,000 emergencies and 10,000 new referrals each year.

To apply you must have MRCOG Part 2 and at least 36 months experience as an SpR (ST6-7 or equivalent) in a recognised RCOG unit. The time spent in this post will not count towards CCT unless approval has been sought by the candidate with their deanery for this to be recognised as an Out Of Programme Training (OOPT). Once shortlisted, candidates are encouraged to visit the unit by contacting Mr. Rahul Nath, Head of Gynae-Oncology on 0207 188 2695.
