Fellowships are part of the wider strategy set out in the NHS Five Year Forward View that aims to integrate secondary care with primary care to improve patient experience and outcomes. They are available across the East Midlands with a focus on developing links and project work with teams in our local Vanguard Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).
These Fellowships will be most useful to trainees in the second half of training, or those who are post CCT in their grace period. You will spend approximately two days per week in your ‘parent’ specialty continuing to gain clinical experience.
You will have up to two days each week working on a project, for example, in quality improvement or service development. Supervisors and Associate Deans will help you develop a project idea and there will be an emphasis on developing your management and leadership skills as well as a focus on the current needs of service transformation in your specialty and locality.
You will have at least one day a week to study for a qualification related to your project, such as a Certificate in Medical Education, Diploma in Elderly Care, or a standalone qualification, such as working towards the MSc in Medical Leadership and Advanced Professional Skills. Health Education England will pay your academic fees up to £3000.
Please refer back here for future vacancies.
Health Education England will host development days for all Fellows during the year, with guest speakers and opportunities to share your experiences with each other. The posts are funded for one year.
Doctors working less than full time can apply for the scheme.
We hope these Fellowships will enhance the careers of doctors undertaking them, and make them the leaders of tomorrow's NHS.
