Applications are invited for a Clinical Fellowship programme embedded within a well-established, innovative and national leading ambulatory medicine department. The applicant would be one of a team of ten ambulatory fellows working in a well-resourced unit lead by a team of 18 consultants and a large experienced multidisciplinary team. This is an exciting opportunity for an energetic, forward thinking trainee who wishes to develop higher level clinical skills in a university teaching hospital and take full advantage of the links held with other Oxford institutions. The role would involve a mixture of banded clinical work but also has two non-clinical days per week set aside where the candidate would be expected to gain experience in leadership, quality improvement, research, teaching and point of care ultrasound.

Alongside their own project portfolio successful applicants will be expected to complement the other Fellowship programmes in research, education, innovation, digital health and informatics. Dedicated opportunities to participate in other departmental, divisional and executive processes will be available and encouraged. Support will be given from the consultant body as well as from key leaders within the Trust.
