Fellow in Anaesthesia for robot-assisted surgery– Royal Devon and Exeter NHSFT

The post would suit a higher or advanced registrar who wants experience and training in the management of anaesthesia for robot assisted surgery.

It would be for 3 months but could be combined with other advanced units of training at Exeter to extend the duration of attachment.

The nationally renowned urology service at Exeter can offer expert training in anaesthesia for robot assisted urological and pelvic surgery. This is a rapidly expanding area of anaesthetic and surgical practice. You would have the opportunity to join a highly skilled team of nurses, ODPs, anaesthetists and surgeons where teamwork and quality are paramount.

Duties of the post include:

•           Approximately 2-3 days per week of dedicated anaesthesia for robotic surgery.

•           High risk pre-operative assessment

•           Opportunity and post-fellowship study time for audit, service improvement and research.

•           An element of service commitment to include the registrar on call rota and  out of hours obstetrics.

The post will concentrate on anaesthesia for robot assisted surgery but on occasions there may be an element of general service duties.

There are also excellent opportunities in Exeter for a suitable trainee to be involved in teaching, simulation, CPEX testing and research.
