Mr Philip Grieve FRCSI FRCSEd (Tr & Orth) is pleased to offer a full-time, 6 month fixed term post as a clinical/research fellow in orthopaedic hand and wrist surgery.

This post will be based in Mr Grieve’s practice in Dublin at the renowned Blackrock Clinic (and outlying clinics) and focusses on hand and wrist surgery with an emphasis on wrist arthroscopy and minimally invasive hand and wrist surgery, including endoscopic nerve releases.

The role is suitable for trainee surgeons who have completed some orthopaedic surgery training and wish to gain exposure in hand and wrist surgery specifically.

There is no on call commitment.

The successful candidate with be required to spend two days per week undertaking research and/or audit projects (with the opportunity for anatomical research if suitable) and would be expected to publish at least two peer reviewed papers and two audit projects during their time in Dublin. The fellow will be expected to provide practice improvements and outcomes. Attendance at clinic is mandatory in a supernumery capacity. A primary function of the fellow will be as first assistant in the operating room and thereby gain valuable exposure to hand and wrist surgery including wrist and small joint arthroscopy. Opportunities exist for teaching.

A stipend will be offered for the position depending on the candidate’s level of experience and performance. Other allowances are payable e.g. paid attendance at the Irish Hand Surgery Society’s or course/conferences as arranged.

This position requires a good command of the English language and registration with the IMC (and/or GMC) and is suitable for an ambitious, capable young surgeon who wishes to publish and learn more about hand and wrist surgery.
