Fellowship Opportunities

Queen Elizabeth University Hosptital

The Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) in Glasgow is  one of the largest hospitals in Europe. We provide the full range of trauma and elective services.  We have been designated as the Major Trauma Centre for the West of Scotland and will be fully operational in 2021.

 

We have vacancies for 3 of our post CCT fellowships from August 2020.  These  fellowships can be for a period of 6 months to 12 months.  In addition to great clinical experience, we would expect our fellows to take a lead in research and present 2 research projects per 6 months with at least one being published.

 

The available subspecialty interests are:

  • Trauma surgery

  • Limb reconstruction surgery

  • Hip surgery

Trauma surgery

We are the regional referral centre for isolated peri-articular trauma. In addition to that, we are the designated major trauma centre for the west of Scotland. We will be fully operational by 2021.  in 2019, the QEUH performed internal fixation of 144 proximal humeral fractures, 33 distal humeral fractures, 74 tibial plateau fractures, 26 pilon fractures and 68 pelvic fractures.  In addition to this, we routinely perform definitive circular ring fixation of both plateau, pilon and open tibial fractures.

 

Limb reconstruction

The QEUH is the regional referral centre for limb reconstruction.  We care for patients with bone infection, deformity, non union, mal union, sequalae of congenital deformity, leg length discrepancy and acute trauma.  We apply in excess of 90 ilizarov frames per annum.  This service is provided in close cooperation with our colleagues from plastic surgery, microbiology and infectious diseases.

 

Hip surgery

We provide the full range of hip surgery from primary hip arthroplasty, revisional arthroplasty, hip arthroscopy and peri acetabular osteotomy. In addition to this, we offer unparalleled experience in metastatic tumour hip surgery and emergency hip surgery for prosthetic joint infection and peri prosthetic fractures.  We perform 122 revision hip replacements per annum and fixation of 32 peri prosthetic hip fractures per annum.
