  • This informal day guides newly appointed consultants, or those who are about to be appointed, through the major issues they will encounter in the first years following appointment.

    The day will be conducted under Chatham House Rules* to allow participants to share experiences and ask questions, from not only experts; but also newly appointed Consultants. The programme will give special attention to those areas not discussed in postgraduate or specialty training.

    The topics covered during the day include:

    • the interview process for consultants roles
    • understanding the gap between training grade and consultant posts
    • the Consultant contract and the job planning process
    • time management and the efficient running of your office
    • work life balance
    • career progression and alternative roles
    • the role of realistic medicine in medical practice
    • opportunities in service development, locally and nationally

    Who should attend?

    • Newly appointed consultants
    • Senior trainees
    • Those returning from a period of absence

    Aims:

    1. To gain an understanding of the Consultant contract and job planning principles
    2. To gain knowledge of the importance of good time management skills
    3. To understand the differences from training grade to consultants grade and to network with others in this period of their career.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. The candidates will be taught the basics of the consultant contract and job planning process with the opportunity to discuss this and the interview process for consultants roles
    2. The candidates will gain an understanding of the requirements for continued work life balance and to develop in their role through career progression and alternative roles.
    3. The candidates will gain an understanding of Realistic medicine and its role in further medical practice.
