Darzi Fellowship opportunities for optometrists

19 May 2016

Two posts have been announced that provide a fantastic opportunity for optometrists to develop the organisational and leadership skills necessary for future roles as clinical leaders in the NHS.

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Moorfields Eye Hospital are currently advertising 12 month Darzi Fellowship positions for optometrists.

Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust are looking to appoint a Darzi Fellow in Clinical Leadership within the Department of Ophthalmology at The Western Eye Hospital and new community services. The Fellow will be a critical link to community optometry partners in the development of new pathways to support the delivery of the Tri-borough Community Ophthalmology Service. More information and a link to the application form can be found on the NHS Jobs website here.

The Moorfields Fellowship will include a portfolio of project-based components including managing the Leadership and Management Skills Course for Ophthalmic Trainees and developing the commissioning landscape.  More information and a link to the application form can be found on the NHS Jobs website here.

The Darzi Fellowship in Clinical Leadership programme aims to support a cohort of clinicians or allied staff in a 12-month project-based attachment, in a variety of London-based secondary and primary care organisations. The programme will provide Fellows with a unique opportunity to develop the capability necessary for their future roles as clinical leaders. In addition to work-based experience, participants are provided with a supporting development programme over the course of the year.

The closing date for Moorfields application is Tuesday 24 May 2016.

The closing date for the Imperial post is Wednesday 1 June 2016.
