Would you like to join a team that makes a real difference every day and at the same time expand your knowledge and experience of Ophthalmology at one of the leading teaching hospitals in the country? If so then we would really love to hear from you.

We are currently looking for Glaucoma Fellow to be based in the Ophthalmology Department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

This is a full/part time appointment suitable for senior ophthalmology trainees who wish to pursue subspecialty training in glaucoma.

The goal of this fellowship training is to complement the basic knowledge gained in core specialty training in ophthalmology and to provide you with greater exposure to the diagnosis and management of a wide range of glaucoma disorders. There is great emphasis on clinical and surgical hands-on training to prepare you for a consultant post. The department has three consultant ophthalmologists who specialise in glaucoma along with a glaucoma nurse team.

The length of the educational program is 12 months of full time education, subject to satisfactory performance review after 6 months. This time includes appropriate short periods for vacation, special assignments, or exceptional individual circumstances approved by the supervisor. Ophthalmology requires an intensive continuum of training therefore it should not be interrupted by frequent and/or prolonged periods of absence.

You will work closely with our senior clinical team and benefit from their experience and knowledge allowing you to expand your own clinical experience every day.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has 1000 beds and serves a population of over 700,000. The hospital is adjacent to the University of East Anglia, the Medical School established in 2002 and the world renowned Norwich Research Park. This ensures that our staff have unqualified access to research development and opportunities for under and post graduate teaching.

Norwich is quite rightly described as “a fine city.” Its skyline is dominated by a graceful cathedral and a massive Norman castle. It boasts countless attractions to interest and intrigue its residents, with all of the modern facilities you would expect in a vibrant city. Norwich schools are rated as some of the best within the country. The surrounding Norfolk countryside and long stretches of coastline are renowned for its beauty and tranquillity. The Norfolk Broads provide a quintessential rural getaway with the North Norfolk villages providing a more traditional ambience. With excellent transport links to Cambridge and London, Norfolk offers everything you require to establish the perfect work life balance.

We are here to support you as you help us support the service at NNUH.

If you are interested in joining our team or have further questions, please contact Mr Chris Illingworth via email chris.illingworth@nnuh.nhs.ukfor an informal discussion.

Further information about the hospital can be obtained from our Web Site.
