Here’s more about the role and what we’re looking for; 

The University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust Gastroenterology team are looking for an enthusiastic individual to join their team as a Teaching Fellow at the Royal Derby Hospital. The candidate would join a team of 16 consultants and a number of trainees offering a full range of services consistent with a large teaching hospital.

The Gastroenterology team are a friendly, dedicated and forward thinking team. There are separate luminal Gastroenterology and Hepatology wards, a dedicated purpose built 7 room endoscopy suite, elective procedure unit and daycase unit. The team are involved with research and patients may be approached to take part in clinical trials. The Gastroenterology/Hepatology service includes assessment, investigation and treatment of disorders of the oesophagus, stomach, bowel, pancreas and liver.

This role plays a critical part in the delivery of teaching in Gastroenterology. The successful candidate will deliver 5 fixed teaching sessions per week (including bedside teaching, tutorials, lectures and skills assessments). They will also undertake 1 outpatient clinic. The remaining sessions can be used to gain greater clinical experience, undertake quality improvement/ research projects etc. The final timetable will, therefore, be developed in conjunction with the candidate’s clinical supervisor. The post holder will have the opportunity to undertake a postgraduate certificate in medical education which is 50% funded by the Trust.


Interviews are planned to take place on 6th June 2019.
