Medical Oncology Fellow


The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is one of the leading cancer centres in the world and has an international reputation for the care and treatment it provides. The associated Institute of Cancer Research has a similar reputation for research and development. The partnership between the Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research constitutes a centre of excellence for research and development, education, treatment and care in cancer. Together they are acknowledged to be one of the largest comprehensive cancer centres in the world. The Royal Marsden serves a local, regional, national and international population from two hospital sites, Chelsea and Sutton.

We are looking to appoint enthusiastic and forward thinking doctor to the post of Clinical Fellow (equivalent ST3 level and above) in Medical Oncology to cover 1 WTE gap in our rotation. The post is due to start from March 2018. The duration of the post would be for a 9 month / 1 year fixed term position, with the view to extend. Details of the job plan to be confirmed at interview.

In order to fulfill the responsibilities of the post the appointee will be required to demonstrate that they have experience in medical oncological management.

The post would be particularly suitable for experienced doctors who have completed Foundation and Core Medical competencies (or equivalent), and wish to gain a period of focused experience and training in a medical specialty in which they are interested in pursuing ST3 training. They would be suitable for candidates who are attempting the second parts of the MRCP (see section 3 below). However less experienced candidates will certainly be considered.

The specialty of Medical Oncology comprises management of cancer using systemic therapies such as; chemotherapy, hormone therapy and biological agents and offers a unique opportunity to develop expertise in managing cancer patients. A multidisciplinary team approach and effective communication is integral to the specialty of oncology. Most of an average week is spent in outpatient clinics, prescribing chemotherapy, planning radiotherapy and on the ward.
