ABN Australasian Fellowships
The ABN and Neurology SAC are looking to recruit 3 UK neurology trainees for the 2017 ABN Australasian Fellowships. These are 12-month clinical placements in Australasia commencing late January or early February 2017 and are expected to complement the clinical training in the UK. Equally these posts will give the incumbents 12 months' accreditation towards their CCT in neurology. It is not envisaged that these posts will be offered to trainees receiving a CCT much before the end of 2017.
This annual scheme commenced in 2013 and parallels the very successful ANZAN Fellowships to the UK that have been running for more than 20 years.
The recipient Australasian hospitals will be St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, Liverpool Hospital, Sydney, and Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane. The appointments committee will decide the allocation to the three centres and applicants will be asked of any preferences.
The Chairs of TEC & Neurology SAC invite applications from any UK trainee in neurology who would be interested in one of these posts. These posts will help showcase the excellence of our trainees and enhance the careers of the successful applications both professionally and culturally. Applicants should submit a CV and maximum 500-word statement outlining the objectives sought from such an overseas Fellowship. Applicants must discuss their intention to apply with their local Training Programme Director (TPD) and also submit a short statement from the TPD supporting the application.
Applications should be e-mailed to the ABN Office clearly marked "ABN Australasian Fellowships" no later than Sunday 3rd April 2016. Interviews will follow for shortlisted applicants at the ABN offices in May/June.
The early application process allows the successful applicants as much time as possible to complete the necessary paperwork and also allow local training programme directors to fill the vacant training slot back in the UK.
