  • Fixed

A Trust in the East Midlands are looking for a Consultant Histopathologist to join their expert team in a large University Hospital and contribute to the Pathology Services of the region. Specialty interests can be discussed and accommodated during the interview process. Given the extensive reach of the Pathology services, they are able to offer all major site-area reporting interests. The post holder will also be working alongside other Consultants that are reporting on a wide array of site-areas which will be discussed in MDT meetings.

Due to the nature of the hospital, they have the facilities to support IMG’s through their CESR (Portfolio Pathway) application and have a strong track record of successful applicants. There is also a strong emphasis on CPD and progressing personal career interests.

The location of the post provides easy access and is well connected to Sheffield and Nottingham  whilst still being close to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the East coast. With the North’s lower cost of living compared to the South and the plentiful, high-quality schooling options in the area, this post is also ideal for applicants that would be relocating with their family.
