Applications are invited for a 12 month senior clinical fellowship programme in Obstetric anaesthesia. This post is to start in February 2021 for the duration of one year.

This fellowship post would suit applicants who have already completed a recognised anaesthetic specialist training programme, including someone who already possesses a CCT in anaesthesia. The post offers the opportunity to develop and increase anaesthetic experience in obstetric anaesthesia prior to taking up a consultant post. The level of supervision will be tailored to the fellow’s prior experience with the ultimate aim of independent practice with distant supervision, so to work at junior consultant level with senior consultant support. The fellowship programme mirrors the requirements for the Royal College of Anaesthetists Advanced Training in Obstetric Anaesthesia but is not recognised a training post. The senior clinical fellow will take part in the general senior clinical fellow on-call rota covering main theatres, PACU and supporting the transplant theatre.

Please note that these posts do not carry Postgraduate Dean’s approval or training recognition.

The NHS department enjoys close links with the University Of Cambridge Department Of Anaesthesia and there are opportunities for the Subspecialty Fellow to become involved in research and other forms of career development as appropriate to the individual. It is expected that the Senior Clinical Fellow will play an active role in non-clinical activities as part of their professional development, and will be assigned an educational supervisor who will regularly review these.
