Fellowship Positions


Most of our medical staff is formed by doctors rotating through the ED as part of various national training programs. However we offer several stand alone posts particularly at registrar level.

In recent years we have created several “fellow” type positions that incorporate dedicated non clinical time into the job plan. These jobs are relatively unique in Ireland and allow great scope for CV and skill development.
