Fellowships

The National Maternity Hospital had 9,187 deliveries in 2015 resulting in the birth of 9,390 babies weighing >=500g.  The hospital is recognised as a national referral centre for complicated pregnancies, premature babies and sick infants.  Our gynaecology unit also treats over 9,000 patients annually.  

The hospital has a long-standing tradition of education at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in many disciplines. As part of the educational focus, three fellowship positions have been established in order to provide focused education in specific areas for highly motivated individuals. Traditionally, experienced doctors at senior registrar or specialist registrar level who will focus on a particular area of interest fill these positions.  Each involves a significant research component.
These posts are currently filled -  the next available positions may be considered in July 2017. For further information please contact the Human Resources Department.
