GMTS career development centres

 

Who are these sessions for?

This online series of sessions are for GMTS trainees and provides an equivalent to the face to face CDC which trainees would have previously participated in. They are designed to work alongside content on the career portal which trainees should have access to. 

How will they run:

Each session will be hosted over zoom and be facilitated by either Jem, Judy or Liz, however unlike the normal experiential modules you are not restricted to which sessions you attend so please only book on to sessions you are able to make.

Important:

We have a variety of dates and times to allow flexibility and enable all those interested to participate. However in order to ensure that these sessions are beneficial to all, there will also be limits on the number of trainees that can attend a particular session so where possible book early and if you are unable to attend please cancel as early as possible in case someone is keen on that particular date.

Any queries can be directed to Oscar.gicheru1@nhs.net
