- Categories: Junior Medical, Fellow
Alfred Health is a leader in health care delivery, improvement, research and education. We are the main provider of health services to people living in the inner southeast suburbs of Melbourne, from ambulatory, to inpatient and home and community based services.
Our General Fellowships allow Fellows to gain a broad depth of experience in all the subspecialties offered at The Alfred, whilst promoting the transition from Registrar to Consultant in a supportive environment. Fellows can expect to gain experience in trauma and burns anaesthesia, anaesthesia for major hepatobiliary and upper gastrointestinal surgery, vascular anaesthesia, neurosurgical anaesthesia, and anaesthesia for major ENT and ophthalmological surgery. Due to dedicated Cardiac Fellowships, exposure to cardiac and thoracic anaesthesia is more limited. Fellows will also be exposed to obstetric anaesthesia at Sandringham Hospital and will be expected to cover some service lists. While there are no formally allocated subspecialty days, it is generally possible to accumulate a significant caseload in areas of interest, and we do encourage all trainees commencing a Fellowship to discuss their aims for the year, so that we can design a pattern of work that best matches their interest.
We consider the ongoing education and training of all our trainees an integral part of our Department’s activities. As well as high levels of clinical supervision, we have a weekly teaching afternoon for all trainees. This comprises topical presentations by both registrars and consultants, followed by a quality improvement session during which interesting, difficult and near miss cases are discussed in an open forum.
Our Department is very supportive of registrars preparing for exams. The Fellows are expected to play a role in supervising junior trainees in theatre, as well as providing formal teaching in our lecture program and exam tutorials. In addition to this, they are often asked to help with the education of medical students, hospital residents, ambulance officers, and nursing staff.
Professor Paul Myles heads a very active research unit within the Department, and as such there is ample opportunity for all interested trainees to become involved in research. Trainees who have their own ideas for research projects are encouraged and assisted in developing and executing them.
Enquiries should be directed to Dr Alan Kakos, Dr Matt Richardson & Dr Sarah Palermo, Supervisors of Training, at SOT.firstname.lastname@example.org
