Is Sexual Health and HIV the job for me?

Working in Genito-Urinary Medicine

If you are considering a career as a GUM Physician, it is essential that you enjoy patient contact, multi-disciplinary team-working and possess and utilise good communication skills.

 

It is important to feel comfortable broaching sensitive issues (such as sex and contraception); that you have good interpersonal skills and be non-intimidating and non-judgmental towards your patients.    

 

You are expected to have completed the MRCP examination too.
