The Trent Foundation School, in partnership with the University of Nottingham and the Queen’s Medical Centre, is pleased to offer 12 Foundation Year 2 (F2) training opportunities in Academic Medicine/Surgery. These innovative rotations will be of interest to you if you would like to explore academia as a career and develop your research skills at the same time as undertaking foundation training. The successful applicants will be allocated a two year programme and will spend their

F1 year either at:

The Royal Derby Hospital or Lincoln in a rotation involving three four-month posts

1. Derby - Urology/ General Medicine / Emergency Medicine

2. Derby - General Surgery / General Medicine / Haematology

3. Lincoln- General Medicine/Trauma&Orthopaedics/Paediatrics

4. Lincoln -Urology / General Medicine/ Anaesthetics

 

The F2 year will be based at the Queen’s Medical Centre (QMC), Nottingham, rotating through one of the four programmes detailed below (please note that the order of posts will vary):

1 .Academic placement / Trauma and Orthopaedics / Geriatric Medicine

2. Academic placement / Emergency Medicine / General Practice

3. Academic placement / General Surgery/ Psychiatry of Learning Disability

4. Academic placement / Cardiology/ General Surgery

 

The four-month academic medicine post is aimed at individuals who wish to gain an insight into research and to help determine whether you have an aptitude for this, by conducting a research project. The Academic Medicine post may be hosted by any academic department within the University of Nottingham, including, but not limited to, Medicine, Surgery, Paediatrics and Genetics. During the 4 month post individuals will complete a research project in a subject/area of their own choosing, working with a research active investigator with suitable experience and infrastructure to support you and your research project. With guidance, subject to supervisor availability, trainees in these placements will be able to arrange appropriate supervision in a specialty of their choosing thereby experiencing research in a clinical area of interest to the individual.

 

Although previously linked to clinical on call within Acute Medicine, these posts no longer contain any clinical commitment during the 4 month academic placement. This means you will have ample opportunity to complete projects and embed yourselves in the academic department you chose.
