KING’S COLLEGE HOSPITAL NHS FOUNDATION TRUST
SUBSPECIALTY SENIOR TRAINING FELLOWSHIP
A new post has been developed to enable an Endocrinology Specialist Registrar approaching completion of their Certificate of Completion of Specialty Training (CCST) the unique opportunity to pursue Subspecialty Training in Endocrinology, Pituitary Disease, Endocrine Oncology and Obesity Medicine based at King’s College Hospital.
The post is envisaged to be a Year 6/7 Specialist Registrar Subspecialty Training position without the requirement for a National Training Number and would be available for up to two years duration. King’s College Hospital is part of King’s Health Partners, one of the Academic Health Sciences Centres.
King’s is one of the most active Tertiary Referral Centres for Endocrine Tumours in the UK with a total catchment area of 3.8 million and with established, distinct Multidisciplinary Teams (MDT) serving patients with Pituitary, Adrenal, Thyroid and Neuroendocrine Tumours. The Endocrine Department also runs a Morbid Obesity Service, and supports a large Bariatric Surgical Practice.
The successful applicant is likely to have completed an MD or PhD thesis with career aspirations to become either a Consultant Clinician or Clinical Academic working in a Tertiary Centre. The postholder would join a Department with three full time Consultant Endocrinologists and six Whole Time Equivalent Specialist Registrars training in Endocrinology and Diabetes, although this post would have distinct responsibilities outside the Specialist Registrar Pool. The postholder would be expected to develop subspecialty Clinical experience acting essentially at a Junior Consultant level, actively participating in Teaching, Audit and with Service development responsibilities. There are additional opportunities for Commercial and Non-commercial Research.
Further details of the post can be obtained from Dr Simon Aylwin (Clinical Lead for Pituitary, Adrenal and Obesity MDTs, telephone: 020 3299 2996), Dr Jackie Gilbert (Training Lead and Lead for Thyroid MDT, telephone: 020 3299 2683) or Professor Alan McGregor (Professor of Medicine, telephone: 020 7848 4212). Shortlisted candidates will be welcome to visit the Department.
