ROYAL DEVON AND EXETER NHS FOUNDATION TRUST
Orthopaedic Quality Improvement Fellow (Core trainee level – Trust Doctor)
Closing Date: 25 April 2021
This exciting, new post will allow a CT level surgical trainee to run a series of quality improvement and research projects. The main work will be around the implementation of Peri-operative team, Enhanced Recovery and BOAST projects. It is very likely that the post holder will be able to present and published on several occasions. The post holder would be part of the Trauma & Orthopaedic department.
The post-holder will be mentored by a practicing consultant surgeon. The post will start from August 2021 for either six or twelve months, as preferred. The post holder will be fully on the junior doctor on-call rota; a 1:8 full shift pattern for days on call and 1:10 nights. Approximately one day a week will be on-call and half a day a week designated to the Quality Improvement projects. This time will be bleep free and protected. Outside of these times, the QI Fellow will work in the context of the Peri-Operative Team.
There are 26 Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons based at the Princess Elizabeth Orthopaedic Centre (PEOC) supported by a Peri-Operative and Orthogeriatric Team. We anticipate that the successful candidate will complement this vibrant and innovative group.
