Applications are invited from individuals seeking specialist training in Skin cancer surgery as applied to Plastic surgery in the UK. The Plastic Surgery Department at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ performs a wide range of resections and reconstructive procedures for skin cancers, including over 80 sentinel node biopsies per year. The workload principally involves wider excisions of skin cancers in all parts of the body, scalp, nose, ear, cheek and eyelid reconstructions following Mohs’ micrographic surgery, as well as axillary, groin and pelvic dissections.

The management of the skin cancer patient from single T1 tumours to complex cases with recurrence or multiple co-morbidities will be an integral part of the training scheme, and exposure to all aspects of skin cancer treatment including non-surgical care. Opportunities exist to observe laser treatments, complex reconstruction for advanced skin cancers, neck dissections and free flap reconstructions.

Fellowships are for 6 months with the possibility of extending, with the emphasis on clinical exposure to multi-disciplinary management. You will gain excellent training in both clinic and theatre, with the aim of training you to assess, perform and manage a range of skin cancers working alongside the department’s three skin cancer specialists. Fellows will need to complete one audit cycle every six months and be responsible for some training teaching of the junior members of the team and rotating medical students from Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ medical school (usually 3). In addition, you will be expected to assist in the provision of the trauma service at St Thomas’ Hospital. Collaborations and research with the skin tumour labs and other national and international trials are also encouraged. Senior Clinical Fellows will take part in a 1 in 18 on call rota.

Due to the clinical demands of this post, it is ideally aimed at individuals who have completed their FRCS (Plast), or who are post-accreditation, but seeking further specialist training, and those working towards consultant posts. The aim is to provide the fellow with the leadership skills and knowledge that will allow them to be an integral member of a developing specialist skin multidisciplinary team. The post can be recognised for training via out of programme.

You will be expected to participate in multicentre surgical research trials as part of the job.
