We offer a number of unique clinical and research based Fellowships, typically for one year. These Fellowships offer an outstanding opportunity for high level training in melanoma and surgical oncology. Fellows work under the supervision of up to six specialist surgeons and assist with the broad range of their activities. Opportunities exist to align with the general surgical oncology, reconstructive plastics or head and neck specialist subgroups the Fellowships involve a substantial clinical workload in dedicated outpatient clinics, operating sessions and weekly multi-disciplinary meetings. The successful Fellows are required to participate in Melanoma Institute Australia’s clinical research programs and actively contribute to its academic productivity. The teaching of junior staff and medical students in theoretical and practical aspects of patient management is an important component of the role.
Applicants need to hold a FRACS or equivalent, be eligible for registration with the Medical Board of New South Wales; have recently completed advanced training in plastic or general surgery and be seeking further experience in melanoma and surgical oncology. Applications are accepted from non-Australian candidates. Appropriate regulatory assistance will be given to facilitate the best overall candidate.
Please note that all Fellowships are taken until 2014. Applications for 2014 Fellowships will be considered in July 2012.
