What other support could I access?
In the first instance, we encourage you to speak with your educational supervisor about career related issues.
However, if you are considering a move away from Medicine or are unsure of which specialty to choose and need more advice, we have a dedicated careers team who can help. There are a number of ways of accessing careers support in the East Midlands region:
- Work with individuals
- Career workshops for small groups
- Web and VLE resources
- Foundation School and Specialty School events and workshops
Supported Return To Training
Supported Return to Training (SuppoRTT) is a nationally driven initiative aimed to support doctors who are out of training safely return to work and their training programme. It applies to trainees who have been out of training for a period of 3 months or more: parental leave, sick leave/phased return and those trainees on OOP (out of Programme).
The Supported Return to Training Team in the East Midlands aims to support all trainees to return to training safely and confidently after a sustained period of absence for any reason. The team will provide full and impartial advice on the SuppoRTT scheme and signpost opportunities available in the region and nationally.
