Career support

Navigating a medical career can be challenging. At these times even the choice to be a doctor can come into question.

When career issues surface in conversations, we discuss feelings and plans openly and without any judgement.

Our medical careers web pages help trainees with aspects of deciding, exploring and rethinking career paths. There are also resources for trainers to underpin and guide careers conversations.

Other useful sites include:



We offer a workshop covering models and approaches to medical career planning. This can be delivered in-person, via your local postgraduate education centre, or remotely for trainers or trainees. The session outlines key stages in career planning, drawing on established career theory and models, and covers:

  • approaches to interpreting and navigating the medical career pathway
  • career challenges most encountered by trainees (and which supervisors might be approached about)
  • a well-recognised four stage approach to career planning and career conversations
  • sources of information and resources to help with different career support needs.
