By third year University of Swansea Medical School students, Marianne Broderick and Caryl Richards
When you're at medical school, all you really care about is medical school and getting through it in one piece. After having some experience in the many different areas you can go into in medicine, suddenly, you are hit with the realisation that you have to decide exactly what it is you might want to do as a career. And that this may be what you're going to do for the rest of your working life! It’s a daunting prospect.
Once the exams are done and the essays handed in, where do you go from there? Questions you may ask yourself include:
For us, the answers were, "I don't know!" So where should you go to get the answers? After lots of discussion, we decided that instead of taking Muhammed to the mountain, we'd bring the mountain to Muhammed and find the answers to our own questions. From here, we listened to the questions our fellow students were asking and decided to run an event where all would become clear.
Two months later and we’re holding an event where consultants and junior doctors can “sell” their specialties, advising us (and other medical students of course) on how we can best use current opportunities to get a better insight into which specialties we are most suited to and which may give us the most fulfilment.
27 specialty representatives are ready to go head-to-head in the specialty career-off, 50 clinicians and several Royal Colleges - all geared up to support our event. There’s also a Q&A where the student audience can ask general questions about what it's like to be a doctor and reps from the BMA will be there to answer any questions on member benefits. Not to mention the cheese and wine!
Event: Medical Students Careers Evening
Date: Thursday 9th March 2017, 6pm to 9pm
Location: Diva’s, First Floor, Union House, Swansea University
Register: You can register for free on arrival.
