Dr Becky Winter, Clinical Teaching Fellow
With over 80 different specialities to choose from you can understand why the GMC ensure career advice is delivered to undergraduate students. (see full list of specialties here: http://www.gmc-uk.org/education/approved_curricula_systems.asp)
The medical school runs a structured career programme from year 1-5 and students also have a mentor scheme in 4th year where they are paired to a registrar in a specialty of their choice, for regular supervision.
As part of my role as Clinical teaching fellow this year I organised the 2017 BSMS career fair. This was a brilliant night with over 220 students from years 1-5 and over 80 senior doctors in attendance to represent there specialities.
