We invite applications from those who wish to build a career in the UK and foremost the NHS. You may also find these posts of interest if you’re a current trainee and are unsure of your future plans.

- Named clinical supervisor
- Local Induction and information pack outlining internal training courses/opportunities available to doctors in these non-approved training positions
- Individual Personal Development Plan and annual Appraisal
- Individual access to the NHS e-appraisal system (funded by the Trust for posts that are six months or longer)
- Funding and paid time available for study leave
- Support towards obtaining Alternative Certificate confirming achievement of foundation competencies, to aid those who want to access a recognised training position in the future”
ALS, ATLS, CcRISP and TILS are all provided locally. You will have a designated clinical supervisor during your appointment and opportunities for support by trained mentors. Regular timetabled teaching sessions will take place to support the service-based learning. There is an active Postgraduate Medical Education Centre on both sites, as part of a dynamic Education and Training directorate, that is developing multi-professional training.
Due to the remodelling of our Clinical Teams across; General and Acute Medicine, Elderly and Rehabilitation medicine we are seeking dynamic and motivated doctors to join us at an exciting time for specialist services as the Trust moves forward in the development of a new clinical staffing model.

The successful candidates will be joining clinical teams who offer a supportive and encouraging environment which will allow progression as a professional through development opportunities in specialist fields as well as their area of particular interest. There will also be an expectation that the post holder will take an active part in both internal and external audits.

We welcome you to visit our hospital and would be happy to arrange; informal visits, telephone calls, or video conferencing calls with our Clinicians if you would like to discuss these posts or your training and development needs in further detail.

We offer flexible and competitive relocation options for new starters. Please speak to a member of the medical Staffing Team if you would like to know more about this. Trust employees can also access our award winning staff benefits package, which includes exclusive discounts for York Trust Staff.

York is internationally renowned for its beauty and heritage and Scarborough is a vibrant seaside resort, surrounded by stunning scenery and glorious beaches, on the East Coast of Yorkshire, set in the beautiful countryside. In order to maximise your experience at the Trust you may be offered a rotational post, either across different departments or across our two acute sites, York and Scarborough Hospitals.

We appreciate it may be difficult to attend an interview in person, therefore we do provide candidates with the option to be interviewed via WebEx video conference facility. Please speak to a member of the team to organise this.
