Medicine on Track

Career planning for foundation doctors

Written by Dr Caroline Elton

Starting your foundation training can seem like an overwhelming time in your career. As you take on new responsibilities, it's natural to focus on the present and worry about the future later.  

But to keep your career moving forward, it's good to make sure you're ready for what comes next.  

Medicine on Track is designed to help you prepare for specialty recruitment by breaking down your career planning into small, manageable steps. 

From the first few weeks to thinking about tasters, from polishing your application to perfecting your interview, Medicine on Track will guide and support you on the road to your ideal medical career.
