What specialty should I choose? This is one of the biggest decisions of your adult life!
We know that you spend a lot of time working in, or alongside senior doctors in, many of the specialties within the NHS, but do you ever have the spare time to ask them what it's really like to work in that specialty as a chosen career? Probably not.
So come along to our free 'Choosing Your Specialty' event on 14 March in Ninewells to get some insider insight!
Firstly, we'll be hearing from Dr Tom Fardon, Associate Dean for Careers, who will open the evening saying a few words about his role with NHS Education for Scotland. Experienced doctors will then provide an overview of their specialty giving an insight into what it's like to work in that specialty, covering various aspects such as:
- entry requirements (essential and desirable)
- the opportunities within the specialty
- the pros & cons (if there are any cons!) of working in that specialty, and, most of all
- what they love about it!
The specialties we have lined up for this event are:
Psychiatry, Radiology, Geriatric & Stroke Medicine, Combined infection, Anaesthetics, General Surgery and General Practice
We also have the Training Program Director for the Broad Based Training program speaking, Dr Nitin Gambhir.
This will be an informal and relaxed evening, with some light refreshments and food, where you might just hear something that changes or influences your future career path!
Tea and coffee will be available on arrival, and a finger buffet & refreshments will be served half way through the evening. The registration process allows you to inform me of any dietary requirements.
