Colleagues, your Supervisors and your Training Programme Director can all be useful sources of advice on what specialty suits you and your life plans. All the Royal Colleges and Faculties have careers advice sections as does the BMA.

Further advice about careers can be found on the Scottish Medical Training website and on the UKFPO website. Information about specialty training can be found here and on Health Careers - hosted by Health Education England but covering the UK as agreed by CoPMeD (the Confederation of Postgraduate Medical Deans).

Information on the RCGP 'Think GP' programme can be found on their website.
