Additional information

Both fellowships offer excellent training and research opportunities for a senior/ post CCT trainee.

The OG surgery unit is going to expand in 2019 and the number of resections is likely to go up to 120 per year. The bariatric surgery is a well- recognised unit for training. Each one of our past fellows has gone onto secure a consultant position in a reputable, high volume bariatric centre. There are excellent opportunities for research in both fellowships.

The department of Surgery has cutting edge research programs in cancer and bariatric surgery with a wide number of clinical and basic science research projects.
