Advanced Training fellowship in Spinal Surgery (PILOT)


Applications are invited, from surgical trainees, for a pilot of two specialist registrar placements in Spinal Surgery. Each placement will be for a period of 1 year, commencing on the 1st of February 2020 or the 22nd of June 2020.  


These training placements provide joint training between neurosurgery and orthopaedic spinal surgery in established spinal centres.  


For information to assist you with your application including, an applicant guide and job descriptions please refer to the document and hyperlink tabs above.


The fellowships will be undertaken as a period of Out of Programme and are pre-certification (CCT) for the duration.  If there is insufficient time to complete fellowship before CCT then training will need to be extended. Trainees will be asked to confirm the extension of CCT with their Training Programme Director (TPD) prior to the interview and the TPD will need to be one of the referees for the post.  

Please note that this Fellowship is a pilot and although GMC approval is anticipated, until it has been confirmed, the programme should be undertaken as Out of Programme Training OOP(T).
