The aim of the Fellowship is to improve the quality of care provided by the local Khmer staff. The fellow will therefore assist with the surgical workload and training, independently and under the direct supervision of Dr Gollogly. The complexity of cases will depend on the level of his/her ability and experience, and is suitable for a senior UK surgeon with an interest in paediatric orthopaedics, trauma and limb reconstruction either individually or in combination. Candidates should ideally have had experience in, or are able to adapt to, working in low resource environments.
The successful candidate is expected to work from 0800 -1700, Monday to Friday, with no on call commitments. It is expected that the period of tenure is at least 6 months, and ideally 1 year. The successful candidate is expected to supervise between 2 and 6 international medical students, who are involved in the clinical activity as well as working on research/audit projects aimed at regional publication.
The fellowship is funded through the University of Oxford by the Kadoorie Family and provides a monthly stipend with an additional allowance for flights, accommodation and insurance. The hospital also provides a 4x4 vehicle, for discretionary use. The funding allows for a very reasonable quality of life in an exotic and interesting location.
