The Trainee and Members Committee invites you to this inaugural symposium, regarding working and training flexibly as a physician.
Over recent years there have been an increasing number of physicians choosing to work and train less than full time. There are a number of different drivers behind these decisions. This symposium intends to explore what it means to work less than full time and flexibly, and is an honest review of the good, the bad, and the ugly, when it comes to balancing work and personal lives. Our speakers will give guidance on the national stance to less than full time working, and the direction of travel for the future workforce - and our workshops will discuss pertinent topics.
This symposium is not just for those planning a less than full time career. It will be invaluable to anyone managing or supervising people working less than full time - as it will give helpful insights to further understand the roles, responsibilities, and value, of the less than full time workforce!
The symposium is aimed at a general medical audience, including doctors in training, general physicians, specialist physicians, general practitioners and some paramedical specialists. Doctors from a range of specialties may find the content relevant and useful. Although the majority of the participants will be doctors and other NHS personnel, our events are generally open to all with an interest in the subject, and for any one event a small number of patients/lay participants may attend.
