A medical degree opens many doors, but how do you decide which is the right one to go through? Whether you are wondering how to choose a career or want to know how to follow a particular path, you'll find the answers in this book. Deciding which medical career to pursue has a huge impact on your future, and yet few doctors or medical students ever receive formal careers advice. Fortunately help is at hand: this book has been fully rewritten to include the latest information on training and career progression, as well as summaries of over 100 different careers open to medical graduates. Whether you aspire to be a general practitioner, medical manager, forensic pathologist or even a brain surgeon, you'll find details on the job, lifestyle, and specific career route. Each career chapter has been written by specialists in their field to give you a unique 'insider's opinion', resulting in the most complete and up to date medical careers guide ever published. Alongside the careers chapters there are new and updated sections on the Foundation Programme, Core Training, Specialty Training, and Academic Training. These describe the major hurdles in each area and how to overcome them. In addition, alternatives and adaptations to formal training are explored, including taking time out, working outside the UK, and working less than full time. From choosing jobs and filling application forms, to interviews and improving your CV, this book covers every aspect in detail.
