Medical Oncology (ACF) ST3 Recruitment
The University of Sheffield, in partnership with Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber and the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, has developed an exciting pathway of academic clinical training opportunities.
Applications are now invited for an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Medical Oncology (ACF) ST3 level in Sheffield from August 2021.
The following posts are available:
One post in either Paediatrics, Medical Oncology or Palliative Medicine – Theme Older People and Complex Health Needs
Onepost ineitherPaediatrics, Medical Oncology
Both posts can be applied for via submission of one application for ACF Medical Oncology in Oriel.
Please read through all the relevant information available on the HEEYH Medical Oncology ACF Webpage and associated links before beginning your application (link available through Oriel).
Applications open at 10am on the 1st October 2020 and the closing date is 4pm on the 4th November 2020. You will not be able to submit your application after this time. Please ensure that you have completed all the relevant sections of the application forms as missing information will deem your application incomplete and it will not be considered.
Academic Clinical Fellowships (ACFs) are 3 year fixed-term national training posts. They attract an NTN(A) and trainees undertake 75 % clinical and 25% academic training over the term of the post. They are employed by the NHS Trust and have an honorary contract with the University at whose Medical School their academic research is supported.
ACF trainees also undertake a Research Training Programme provided by the University for which funding is provided by NIHR. They also are eligible for a £1,000 bursary per year to support research training activity (e.g to attend academic conferences).
ACF trainees would also normally complete and submit an external funding application for a research fellowship to enable them to complete a higher degree (PhD or research MD) following the completion of their ACF fixed-term post, which would be completed as Out-of-Programme-Research (OOPR).
All Academic Clinical Fellowships are run-through posts, regardless of specialty. A trainee entering ACF at ST1 in a specialty with a Core Training period would therefore be guaranteed continued training to CCT in the eventual specialty, as long as they progress satisfactorily through their training.
We advise all applicants to read through all the relevant information available on the HEEYH Medical Oncology ACF Webpage and associated links before beginning your application through Oriel.
