Forth Valley is delighted to offer a clinical development fellow programme in the below specialties:
- General Medicine
- Acute Internal Medicine
- Ageing & Health
- Emergency Medicine
- General Surgery
- Obs & Gynae
The clinical fellow programme is designed to provide junior doctors with the opportunity to gain experience of a specialty of their choosing, whilst also bolstering the cadre of doctors in training. Over recent years our CDFs have undertaken a range of non-clinical activities including undergraduate teaching, simulation training, medical leadership, quality improvement and service improvement.
Each CDF post is structured in a fashion which suits the needs of both the department and the clinical fellow, allowing for on-call commitments. Most programmes offer a session or two per week (or equivalent) of non-clinical time to facilitate projects; often there is an associated study budget.
Posts are generally advertised in February/March for commencement in August.
Enquires or questions should be directed to:
- General Medicine – Dr S Salunke
- Surgery – Mr J Crozier
- Emergency Medicine – Dr S Feltbower
Alternatively advice can be sought from the FVRH Human Resources team.
