Why Career Start
There are many career paths for recently qualified GPs to take but unique to Grampian is the Career Start scheme. For me the attraction of this post was the option of being able to gain experience working as a GP but also being able to develop a specialist interest alongside it.
Teaching and medical education is an area I have been interested in for some time, so career start has been the ideal opportunity to begin developing new skills in this area, while getting the chance to build on my GP skills learnt throughout training.
It is a great opportunity for professional development and as a stepping stone for a versatile future career.
