The Royal London - Simulation Fellow


One year Simulation Fellowship at the Royal London


The Simulation Fellowship is available to ST5+ anaesthetic trainees.


The job is split between the simulation centre and the anaesthetic department at the Royal London Hospital


40% of your time (8 days a month) is spent at the Simulation centre.  You will be trained in debriefing skills and technical aspects as well as running a simulation course.  The simulation centre is busy, and runs a wide variety of courses.  You will have an opportunity to be faculty in courses designed for:


  • Medical students

  • Foundation doctors

  • Anaesthetists of all grades

  • Trauma teams

  • Paediatric doctors & nurses

  • Labour ward teams

  • Physicians

  • Critical care nurses

  • Physiotherapists

  • A-Level students


Simulation training is continually in development, and there are plenty of opportunities to refresh scenarios and get involved in the development of new courses.  New courses are frequently submitted for publication.













This can be counted towards training and the modules are exactly the same as those available to the other senior registrars on the general adult rota. The post is 1 year long – it runs from February to February.  The advert for this competitive post is released in July approximately 7 months before the post commences.


For further details please contact Rachel Crisp (Simulation Centre Manager) or Dr Chris Sadler (Simulation Lead).


As part of the education academy team, there will be some opportunities to facilitate on courses outside of simulation, such as clinical skills, small group teaching and lectures.  There is a close collaborative network with the other simulation centres within Barts Health (Whipps and Newham).  Many past fellows have been supported while studying for medical education qualifications.


The 60% clinical commitment is at the Royal London anaesthetic department on the 1220 (Senior registrar) rota.
