There’s #moretomedicine

Abeyna Jones Posted by Abeyna Jones on July 24, 2016

There’s #moretomedicine campaign is about promoting the diversity of careers available to medics

huffpostThis campaign is currently being covered by The Huffington Post 

 

We conducted a recent poll of 400 doctors which revealed that 50% were planning to leave the country and 12% were considering leaving medicine altogether.

Leading up to the notorious ‘Black Wednesday‘ during the first week of August where most junior doctors swap rotations and new medical student graduates commence on the job, many are seriously contemplating whether they’ve made the right choices in their careers.

Due to lack of exposure to the majority of options available to us during our careers, this campaign is to raise awareness of the wealth of opportunities available to medics.

 

Alternative Careers and Wellbeing Event (ACW)

30th Sept – 1st Oct 2016

Starting Monday 25th July 2016, we will release some special offers for our upcoming extravaganza showcasing diverse career opportunities which ends when they’ve run out!

Due to increasing our capacity due to high demand & securing sponsorship, we’ve released some subsidised tickets.   Check it out Here.

 

Take part in the campaign

  • Tweet about what you do if you’re a doctor with other skills – get #moretomedicine trending on twitter
  • Tweet your support for the campaign if you’re a non-medic
  • Share your stories with us through our contact form if you’re a medic who’s taken the leap and/or you’re living a career with your wellbeing in mind.

 

A Week of Twitter Discussions – Join us!

We’ve lined up some twitter chats between Mon 25th July to Friday 29th July 2016 with medics speaking at the ACW event who have successfully diversified and or transitioned to other careers using their transferrable skills.
