Along with the rest of the 2017 cohort of trainees I have recently submitted my assignments for Module 1 of the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (EGA) Program.

The sessions deal with a number of aspects that it is important to consider when working in healthc...

Hi everyone, I wanted to start this post by wishing those of you that are currently having, or have just had, interviews the best of luck, even if you don’t get what you want it’s still fantastic experience for you all. Anyway, aside from that I was thinking about what to write in this post. I’d been thinking about it for a little while to be honest, and came up with nothing. As luck would have it though I recently helped out at an interview, and found myself in a room with a Finance trainee,...
