Medical Careers Websites

These websites can help with advice about career progression as well as outlining the options available. Only a few have been chosen from many available – but these are among the best we’ve seen. They also contain links to the more specific websites you need to explore in more depth.

Health Careers Website
Run by the NHS and Health Education England – contains many resources and advice – takes time to explore fully – but that’s partly due to the wealth of resource available to you. Probably the best / most authoritative medical carers website available to you – lots of advice on your options but also good for resources about managing your career.
BMA Careers pages
Lots of practical advice – good access even if you’re not a member.
UoA Careers Service
The University Careers Service can advise personally and help with important aspects of career progression such as CV building – and – advisers from the service visit the ARI site regularly – you can book an appointment through their website.
BMJ Careers website
The articles and tips sections have some really useful advice – these are often written by newly qualified doctors.   The news items are really useful – especially if it’s near to a time when you’re making decisions about the next step in your career.
