Career Planning e-learning programme for core doctors

Health Education England elearning for healthcare has developed three bespoke elearning courses to help core medicine, surgery and psychiatry doctors make informed career choices and effective applications for future career steps. These courses are the latest in a number of bespoke career planning courses developed for health professionals within the elearning for healthcare career planning programme.

The courses will provide core medicine, surgery and psychiatry doctors with a deeper level of understanding of how to ensure future career planning is informed, realistic and robust. They are based around the following five sessions:

  • Introduction which provides an overview to the course
  • Self-awareness which includes reflecting on values, work preferences, skills interests, personality and career stressors
  • Career exploration which includes consideration and research of career options available as well as developing effective networks
  • Arriving at your decision which focuses on decision making types and methods as well as how to check the robustness of career decisions
  • Next Steps which offers advice, information and examples on CV development, job applications and preparing for interviews as well as effective action planning

For each session, learners can compile a distinctive, thorough personal portfolio of research and reflections contained in a downloadable workbook, which can be used to support job applications and interviews.

The elearning resource is available on the elfh Hub, the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) and via AICC links.
