Preparing for your first consultant role course agenda 2020
Future dates for this course will be announced.
6 CPD credits*
As you are aware the UK government has indicated that everyone in the UK should avoid non-essential travel and contact and we are following this advice. After careful consideration we have decided to cancel all face to face courses until the end of 2020. When the situation changes we will update our website.
Starting as a consultant is the biggest career transition after becoming a doctor. This course helps you prepare to meet the challenges ahead and make the most of your new role.
This course complements the Leadership skills course. They are on consecutive days to make it easier for you to attend both days if you would like to.
*This course has been approved by the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK for 6 category 1 (external) CPD credits.
