Referral Appointments

Referring a trainee for careers support

The reasons for referrals are varied and individual to each case, but can include:

  • Uncertainty about the direction of medical career or choice of specialty.
  • Consideration of a career outside medicine.
  • Opportunity to explore career options in a confidential environment.
  • Lack of progress and a desire to reconsider career path.
  • Ill health is affecting the ability to follow an initial choice of career.
  • Supervisor feeling little progress is being made or having other difficulties engaging a trainee in careers support
  • A trainee wishing to have careers support from someone outside of their normal employment/training environment, for confidentiality or impartiality reasons

There are many other possible reasons beyond those listed above.
