Event Details

We usually come across the term ‘Medico-Legal’, when we have to pay out for indemnity, having to deal with adverse events in our clinical practice or assessing patients after injuries for insurance purposes.

However very few of us really know what steps are needed to take to;

  • Develop a career pathway within the sector
  • How to best mitigate the chances of us needing to use our professional indemnity organisations!


Or perhaps you’ve learned about the basics of what a career in medico-legal is about, but now want tips for successfully launching your career fully in this area?

Well, procrastinate no further and join our live webinar where we’ve assembled 3 doctors with a diversity of experience within medico-legal to give you the insights you need to successfully navigate this exciting, complex sector.

Key Topics:-

  • What does medico-legal practice involve?
  • Career options and how you can get started
  • Training and qualification options
  • How to manage your own medical legal practice
  • Tips for avoiding common pitfalls



  • Make smarter, more informed career choices to enable you achieve your goals
  • Make speedier progress and be less likely to make common mistakes
  • Expand your sphere of knowledge and spur your curiosity
  • Connect with experts in the medico-legal sector who can support your own career plans
