Applications are invited to apply for a Specialty Doctor post in the Urology Department at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
The post holder will join a team of 5 Consultant Urologists at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
The post will be for 10 sessions per week with weekend ward cover as part of a 1:4 rota (10PA’s +1.5 PA’s)
Applicants should have FRCS or both Parts I & II MRCS and have the ability to do flexible cystoscopy. A minimum of 2 years’ experience within Urology and the ability to run OPD clinics without supervision would be desirable. Initially, the Specialty Doctor will primarily be responsible for managing the patients on the ward but later changes will be made to suit their personal and professional needs.
There would be excellent opportunities for training as well as undertaking some research/audit dependent on the experience and interest of the successful applicant.
The successful applicant will be expected to participate in teaching both undergraduate and postgraduate students associated with the University of Buckingham and will also be expected to support colleagues with these activities as part of his or her arranged job plan.
Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, in partnership with the University of Buckingham, is a University Teaching Hospital. This allows us to attract, train and retain the best doctors and contribute towards the financial stability of the organisation.
This is also an important step towards establishing the trust as a world-class centre for teaching excellence. The first students arrived on wards in May 2015 and by the beginning of 2017 a medical school building will have been constructed, which will also create exciting opportunities in the future for all staff in the fields of clinical research and education.
We believe the continued growth of the hospital will allow us to expand and improve our services to offer the very best care to the people of Milton Keynes, and beyond.
