Medicine is a diverse career with meandering pathways, crossroads, and detours, where there is no one-size fits all; “White coats, what next, and where to?” is a conference meant to reflect exactly that.

We aim to provide a platform for students to learn about the various career paths available, to hear from those who have gone before them, and to gain valuable advice about the challenging decisions that they will need to make through their journeys to become doctors.

Speakers from across the medical professionwill discuss their experiences in everything from clinical medicine to academia and research. We will also have talks on what to expect in your first few years after graduating, as well as a forum with junior doctors on the realities of working in different countries.

Delegates will have the chance to take part in some exciting workshops taught by professionals, in skills such as suturing, and gaining advice on how to improve your CV.

There will also be an opportunity to present a research poster, with a prize for the best presentation.
