Clinical Fellow in Haematology

Applications are invited for a Clinical Fellow to work within the Haematology directorate based at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. The post holder will get the unique opportunity to work both as a fellow in BMT, H&T and general haematology. The post can be split either as 6 months in each specialty (with an option to do a second year) or as 12 months in each area. This post would also be suitable for a trainee (or post CCT holder) seeking sub-speciality training in either BMT or H&T in which case the post holder may remain within the sub-speciality area of interest for the duration of the post.

This is an excellent opportunity for doctors considering applying for a specialty registrar post in haematology who want to gain more exposure to the specialty. The University Hospital of Wales is a level 4 haematology unit supporting a large allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant Service and the Haemophilia Comprehensive Care Centre for Wales.

The post holder will be supported and mentored by the Consultants as appropriate to their professional needs, and interest and active participation in clinical trials will be encouraged and supported. The post holder will be expected to participate in the ongoing SpR teaching and training program within the department and there will be support to attend clinical and scientific meetings where appropriate to further aid development.

As part of a multidisciplinary team the post holder will contribute to the delivery of inpatient and outpatient services and participate in quality improvement programmes across all aspects of the services. A role in teaching will be encouraged and supported, including training of junior medical and nursing staff as well as participation in the education of medical students.
