January 9th, 2024 – UCL-Wellington Clinical Fellowship

The 2024 UCL- Wellington Clinical Fellowship scheme is now open for applications.

UCL and the Wellington Hospital are partners in a long-standing programme in which Fellows study for a PhD in the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science while working at the UK’s largest private hospital providing specialist complex care.

This Clinical Fellowship is available to cardiologists looking to undertake an exclusively cardiovascular PhD. Fellows will register for their higher degrees at UCL (part-time). Their salary will be funded by The Wellington Hospital who will also cover their annual higher degree registration fee and an annual allowance for consumables for a period of up to 3 years. In return the Fellows are employed directly by the Hospital, working the equivalent of 30 hours per week.

Clinically the Fellows will be based at The Wellington Hospital in St. John’s Wood, London while the academic work will be based within the Institute of Cardiovascular Science, UCL.

We welcome all applicants who are medically qualified, GMC registered and have MRCP. The scheme is open only to UK nationals due to funding restrictions.
