F1 Careers Workshops

'Your Life, Your Career, Your Direction’


This is a free workshop for Foundation Year 1 Doctors across the West Midlands giving you a valuable opportunity to consider some of the important career issues facing junior doctors.

Themes covered include:

  • Choosing a specialty and managing your career
  • Reflecting on what is important to you in work and life
  • Understanding your skills and strengths, and identifying evidence and examples to use in applications and at interview
  • Understand the application process for specialty training, competition levels, recruitment trends and alternatives to going straight into training
