A Junior Specialist Doctor (Higher) position is offered for a fixed term period to commencein March 2019 for 12 months. As there will be no senior UGI trainee on the firm for this period, the post is suitable for a surgeon looking to broaden their understanding in complex Upper GI Benign and Malignant disease in a major teaching hospital tertiary unit. The post is versatile and can be tailored to individual learning requirements. We would rather have a keen enthusiastic, less experienced trainee than a disinterested, more experienced person.
