Thoracics at Heartlands Hospital

6 months to 1 year
Suitable for advanced trainees


Heartlands is the largest stand alone thoracic surgical unit in the UK providing an unique opportunity to gain considerable experience in thoracic anaesthetic techniques and peri-operative care of the thoracic surgical patient. There is a separate thoracic HDU run by the thoracic department. 

The fellow will be expected to do a minimum of three sessions/ week on thoracic training lists and attend pre-assessment clinics. Out of hours the commitment is between theatres and the intensive care unit depending on service and training needs. There will be an opportunity to play a significant role in quality improvement projects relevant to thoracics.
