Interventional Radiology fellowship position at Christchurch Hospital

Christchurch Hospital is offering fellowships in Interventional Radiology for 6 and 12 month periods.

Canterbury DHB is home to a busy Interventional Radiology service based at Christchurch Hospital, the largest tertiary centre in the South Island. Our new hospital houses state of the art equipment with 2 angiography suites (a monoplane, 1 biplane), 1 hybrid theatre, 1 interventional CT, 1 interventional Ultrasound room and 1 PICC room. We provide a highly specialised 24/7 service with the whole spectrum of interventions ranging from simple biopsies and drainages to complex EVARs/FEVARs and stroke clot retrieval.

The fellow will be supervised by a team of 7 IR consultants, work alongside one other IR fellow and supervise an IR Senior House Officer as well as Radiology registrars rotating through the department.

Fellows will be expected to attend (and when sufficiently confident lead under supervision) the weekly Vascular MDT meeting.

Fellows will also be expected to attend and participate in the department weekly CME session, take registrar film reading tutorials and contribute to the weekly interesting case review session.

Fellows are encouraged to engage in clinical and basic research projects, and to participate in at least one research project with the aim of publication. Submission to the RANZCR NZ Branch ASM or RANZCR ASM (or agreed alternative), preferably for presentation in a scientific session is encouraged.

The fellowship can be tailored to meet the needs of the fellow. Typically, a base roster comprising 5 IR sessions, 2 general reporting session (which can be tailored to other areas of interest), 1 non-clinical session a well as involvement in clinics and research will be agreed at the commencement of the appointment.

In addition to performing and reporting radiological procedures and interpreting and reporting vascular imaging, there is the opportunity to maintain general reporting skills.

Fellows are expected to participate in the consultant IR on-call roster, (with a back-up consultant also rostered for advice and assistance), once satisfactory skills have been demonstrated (frequency 1:4).

Note: separate paediatric and general (adult) radiology on-call rosters are in operation.
