Coventry Microsurgery and Major Trauma Fellowship, University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, May 2016 to February 2017
Current (July 2017) post: Consultant Plastic Surgeon, University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust
"As the inaugural Fellow on this programme I was able to carve out a definitive role as a Microsurgeon in a busy Major Trauma Centre, focussing on both emergency and elective microsurgery. The greatest achievement was the attainment of a substantive Consultant post within the host institution. It allowed me to enhance my microsurgical technique, as well as aid my reconstructive algorithm development in a variety of complex major trauma patients. The Fellowship was well supported, both in clinical and academic terms, and I have continued this into my Consultant job plan. I personally feel that the RCS Senior Clinical Fellowship has brought even more cohesion to the Trauma and Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgery departments, and I feel that I really got to make a difference to a large number of patients. I would thoroughly recommend this post to individuals with a microsurgical and general plastic surgery interest."
