South West Endoscopy Training Academy Advanced Lower GI Fellow

Focus: Endoscopy
Start date: 03/01/2022
Duration: Other 8 months

The aim is to increase GI endoscopy training opportunities for the academy fellows whilst still being able to access other speciality training. Posts should be eligible for OOP-T status and could count towards training. Employing trusts will be required to guarantee the availability of two therapeutic lower GI endoscopy training lists per week. Two other sessions will be available for the fellow to deliver service lists (subject to JAG certification status). One session will be available for research/education. The remaining sessions will be used to backfill local registrars.

The fellowships have been designed with a defined period of therapeutic lower GI endoscopy training, increasing their endoscopic experience whilst continuing with gastroenterology or higher surgical training.

Suited to more senior SpR trainees (ST5 or above) wanting to increase their therapeutic lower GI/polypectomy endoscopy experience before CCT.


4 Lists per Week
2 Service Lists
2 Training Lists

There is no defined on call commitment for the fellowship posts. However, 50% of the fellowship is spent backfilling the local SpRs. This may include some daytime on call commitment - eg GIM cover. There is no expectation for out of hours on call cover and the fellowship are not funded for this. However, if there was a local need for this, it would have to be negotiated with the fellow and funded by the trust. On-call Commitment
