Local advice is the first stop 

The variety of opportunities within medicine mean that for most trainees, there is a rewarding career available to them. There is a wealth of information available from careers websites, college and specialty publications and other sources.   However, career decisions can seem bewildering at times and trainees can and do benefit from guidance.  

If you feel it is appropriate, initial advice can be obtained locally from your educational supervisor or training programme director. Their experience as a trainer makes them well placed to offer career advice.  

More specialised advice 

In some circumstances you may want advice from out with your own specialty or department, or from someone who does not know you. This may be particularly helpful for more specialised career decisions such as changing specialty or leaving medicine. Our associate postgraduate deans are experienced in meeting with trainees on a one-to-one basis for confidential careers advice.
