Senior Clinical Fellow in Oncology

Applications are sought for a two month Registrar equivalent level post in Clinical Oncology available from 2nd January 2019. This post has arisen due to a gap in the rotation. The post holder will work directly with one or more Consultant Oncologists and alongside other Oncology Specialist Trainees in assessing and treating patients with malignant disease. Experience in Oncology at CMT level would be desirable, however, it is not essential and the work commitments of the team will be reviewed and adjusted to that of a more junior, or more senior level.

The Royal Free London is a major teaching centre in central London. It is the London Cancer centre for the management of renal cancer, hepatobiliary tumours, neuroendocrine cancers and melanoma. The department provides a high quality service to cancer patients and delivers care using a variety of advanced radiotherapy techniques including IMRT, IGRT, SABR, respiratory gating and intra-operative radiotherapy.

Clinical and Medical Oncology teams work closely together to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to cancer. There is an active clinical research programme and a wide portfolio of clinical trials supported by research nurses.

The department has an active postgraduate teaching programme and the incumbent will be expected to attend teaching sessions on Monday lunchtime, Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Whilst these posts are not training posts, the post holders will have educational supervision and will be expected to maintain an ePortfolio. Funding for educationally approved training courses/conference attendance is also available.

The post-holder would participate in the registrar on-call rota for Oncology. The rota involves a twilight shift (to 7pm) during the week, and 9am-5pm cover at weekends.

This post would be most suited to an applicant with an interest in pursuing Oncology as a career and who wishes to gain further experience in the field to strengthen their chance of success in National Recruitment to the specialty. Applications from overseas clinicians are encouraged though full GMC registration (including satisfactory IELTS language score) is essential in order to start the post.
