Our vision is to improve the health and quality of life of our diverse population by building an organisation that:

  • Excels in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching
  • Attracts, develops and retains great people

Applications are sought from highly motivated and talented individuals for a clinical fellowship in Interventional Cardiology at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

This well-established fellowship in a prestigious and high-profile department is designed for a trainee cardiologist seeking advanced training in coronary intervention. Prior knowledge of basic coronary interventional techniques is anticipated. The appointee will work with all interventional cardiologists at the MHC, but most closely with the five dedicated coronary interventionists, Dr Farzin Fath-Ordoubadi, Dr Magdi El-Omar, Dr Douglas Fraser, Dr Cara Hendry and Dr Yahya Al-Najjar.

The successful candidate will have good exposure to all aspects of contemporary coronary interventional techniques; including CTO PCI, IVUS, OCT, dedicated bifurcation stents, bioresorbable scaffolds and use of percutaneous Lv assist devices. In addition to specific training in coronary intervention, the appointee will contribute to general cardiology workload, including a weekly cardiology OPC and out of hours on-call.

The frequency of catheter laboratory sessions is likely to vary from week to week, but a minimum of 4-5 sessions can be expected each week. The trainee can expect to be a fully-fledged interventional cardiologist upon completion of the fellowship. All fellows who have completed this fellowship have successfully secured interventional cardiology consultant posts in this country or abroad.

There is an active research programme within the MHC and the successful candidate will be expected to dedicate 2-4 weekly sessions to research/audit activity, and to publish several manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals.
