An exciting opportunity has arisen for one year fixed term appointment as a robotic exenteration fellow in open and robotic pelvic cancer surgery. Based in Chelsea the successful candidate will spend 4 months in each of three specialties – Urology, Colorectal and Gynae Oncology.

The fellow will have the opportunity to complete da Vinci robotic simulation training and formal wet lab ‘ console’ training courses. This role will allow the trainee to train in robotic and open radical cystectomy/prostatectomy, anterior/posterior/total pelvic exenteration and complex colorectal resections.

Fellows will participate in the surgical management of patients undergoing pelvic cancer surgery and collaborate with other members of the MDT in their peri-operative management. In addition, abundant research opportunities and mentorship will be available to the appointed candidate.

Applicants should have previous experience in higher surgical training with FRCS/FRCSOG or equivalent. All appointments are conditional on satisfactory medical screening.

The Royal Marsden is a world leader in cancer research, treatment and education. Together with our academic partner, The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), we are the largest comprehensive cancer centre in Europe and the only National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Biomedical Research Centre specialising in cancer in the UK.

Our mission is to continue to make a national and international contribution to cancer research and treatment, so that more people are cured and quality of life is improved for those with cancer. The Royal Marsden therefore plays an important role in championing change and improvement in cancer care through research and innovation, education and leading-edge treatment.

The Royal Marsden NHS Trust has a well-established surgical program across all surgical specialties and this is an excellent opportunity to increase experience in surgical oncology.

You will gain experience of working in multi-disciplinary units composed of surgeons, medical and clinical oncologists and specialists in palliative medicine, all working together to provide high quality management of cancer patients.

The fellow will gain ample experience in performing Robotic prostatectomies, cystectomies, RPLNDs renal cases, hysterectomies, lymphadenectomies, radical hysterectomies, exenterative and reconstructive pelvic surgery, synchronous liver and colorectal resections, reconstructive among other procedures.

The fellow will be allowed to develop his or her area of interest. Fellows will also have the opportunity to work with other faculty members in the Departments of Gynaecologic Oncology, Urology, and Department of Colorectal Surgery.

The fellow will actively participate in the surgical management of patients on the Robotic Surgery Service, and collaborate with other members in the perioperative management of Robotic surgical patients.

The fellow will have access to the Robotic surgery simulator onsite, to further complement their educational experience. The fellow will also become very familiar with the DaVinci robot operating room setup, docking techniques, instruments, and troubleshooting approaches.

Fellows will have protected time for research, and have abundant research opportunities and mentorship. The fellow should expect to publish 2-3 publications by the end of the year, with emphasis on robotic surgery. The fellow will have the opportunity to attend and present his/her research at national and international meetings.

In addition to the technical aspects, the successful candidates will manage all aspects of complicated patients and actively partake in the MDT as appropriate.

There is also an expectation that the post holder participate in discussions with the Consultant group about performance, clinical system improvements, patient safety, education and training as well as day to day management issues.
