Clinical Fellowships

The following Clinical Fellowships are currently available in the Minimally Invasive Therapy Unit & Endoscopy Training Centre:

Visiting Clinical Fellow in Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgery

Fellowships are available for foreign graduates interested in receiving training in gynaecological endoscopic surgery. Visiting Clinical Fellows will be expected to become an integral part of the team and take part in the clinical service and postgraduate workshops. Research will be encouraged.

These posts are available for one year in the first instance with possible extension for a further period. Registration with the General Medical Council in London is mandatory, and applicants must have a good command of the English language. There is no hospital funding for these Fellowships so prospective candidates are expected to obtain support from local sources. Hospital accommodation may be available.

Visiting Fellow in Gynaecological Endoscopic Surgery

Visiting Fellowships can be arranged for doctors who are unable to register with the General Medical Council. Trainees without GMC registration cannot directly take part in the clinical service offered by the Unit but will be expected to assist, to take part in the postgraduate workshops and undertake a research project during their stay. As with the Visiting Clinical Fellowships, these posts are not salaried and candidates will be expected to provide their own funding.

Informal enquiries regarding these posts can be made by email (a.magos@medsch.ucl.ac.uk) or telephone (+44 (0) 20 7431 1321).

To be a successful surgeon you need the eye of a hawk, the heart of a lion, and the hands of a lady.
