NEW POSTS for clinical fellows in Anaesthesia, Critical Care and Mountain medicine in Snowdonia, North Wales


Ysbyty Gwynedd Anaesthetic department is looking to recruit doctors in Anaesthesia and Critical care with an interest in mountain medicine to join our team of trainees, specialty doctors and other clinical fellows working on our resident/on call rotas.  


The jobs are one- or two-year posts aimed at supporting those already accepted onto, or undertaking, the Diploma of mountain medicine, or those hoping to undertake the diploma of mountain medicine who require further development of their climbing/navigation skills.


Applicants for the one-year post must have 1-year previous anaesthetic experience and IAC or equivalent. 


Applicants for the two-year post would (if needed) be trained in anaesthesia and critical care and so do not necessarily require previous anaesthetic experience. 


Diploma modules would be paid for (up to two a year) and also study leave provided to attend the diploma residential weeks.


Those not yet accepted onto the Diploma, but who have at least 1-years’ experience in anaesthesia, would be able to spend a year with us, working together with Plas y Brenin (PYB) - the national outdoor centre based down the road in Capel Curig, with time allocated to obtain the pre-requisites for the DiMM e.g. climbing/navigation/winter skills.


All of the jobs would involve a mixture of work on all three 1 in 8 on call rotas with 10% time (approx 20 days/yr) allocated to developing their mountain medicine interest through time spent at Plas y Brenin, the national outdoor centre undertaking roles in education and/or research (on top of study leave to attend diploma modules).


Ysbyty Gwynedd is a 500-bed district general hospital located between the mountains of Snowdonia and the beaches of Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula serving the population of North West Wales. 


The hospital has 15 operating theatres and an 8 bedded Intensive care unit and 5 bed surgical high dependency unit.  The posts involve participation in the on call rotas either covering theatres, obstetric anaesthesia or ICU. Applicants will be expected to be able to work on at least two of these three rotas depending on departmental needs.


Start dates are August/February each year, however allowances can be made for reasonable changes to the start dates.  Bear in mind that the first DiMM residential module is in December and in order to complete the DiMM you would need to be in post to undertake the first module by then. 

All applicants require full registration with licence to practice with the GMC and have completed foundation training or equivalent.

If you have an interest in Anaesthesia and Critical care, have a love of the outdoors and are excited to undertake the Diploma in Mountain Medicine then this is the job for you!
