                                           Clinical experience

       -   This section should now be tailored to the specific post you are applying for.

       -   List sub-headings in order of priority for the post.

       -   Sub-headings to include specialty training / experience, general paediatrics,
           community child health, neonatology etc.

       -   Describe experience by topic / specialty, rather than by post.

       -   Refer to skill/expertise learning in General Professional Training (GPT) & how
           you have consolidated this in Higher Professional Training (HPT)

       -   This should be the major section in the majority of applications

       -   Try to link in courses you have done (i.e. avoid having a list of courses) which
           have contributed and also how general experience/specialist experience helps in
           your particular specialty. E.g. Clinical Genetics post being useful for
           Community Paediatrics or a Cardiology post for PICU, Respiratory Paediatrics
           for Neonatal Medicine etc. The whole idea is to make it look as if your entire
           training was geared and planned with the post you are applying for in mind.

                 (This may come nearer the end of the CV for DGH applicants)

       -   Amount of detail will depend on the post – more for ‘academic’ or
           ‘tertiary’posts, less for general paediatric posts.

       -   Describe experience in general, and specific projects in detail.

       -   Describe future research aspirations, and how they might tie in / fit in with post
           being applied for.

       -   This section may be as meaty as the clinical section in a major academic or
           research orientated application.

       -   Experience in grant applications

       -   Describe your approach to / interest in / training in /relevance of audit and how
           it fits within the framework of clinical governance

       -   Illustrate with a couple of key audits, including your involvement, key
           processes and outcomes (i.e. to illustrate your understanding of the audit cycle)

       -   You can refer to your extensive list of audits undertaken throughout your career
           in your portfolio


       -   Describe teaching experience, including different grades and professions
           (including multidisciplinary).

       -   Describe any special interest or skills in teaching.

       -   Describe any training you have had in teaching or the support of learning, and
           any qualifications or membership of relevant ‘institutions’.

           of what they are looking for

       -   why you are a good candidate for the post (i.e. why they simply should not
           consider any other candidate)

       -   what you would hope to bring to the post, and how you might plan to develop
           yourself and the post once in post (be careful not to imply criticism of the

           time to work!
