We appreciate that many of you are on the frontline of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, and our 2021 event will provide an opportunity for reflection and recovery.

The virtual conference will include:

  • Live sessions and workshops with opportunities for interaction with speakers
  • A programme of inspirational talks to view on demand
  • A full virtual exhibition and the ability view current vacancies and connect with recruiters over live video chat
  • 1-2-1 advice clinics with expert career coaches
  • Searchable attendee list with live chat to connect with other delegates


Key topics to be covered include:

Career Essentials
Featuring sessions on writing an eye-catching CV, interview skills and more, our career essentials stream will help you analyse what’s on offer and present yourself as the best candidate for the position.

Personal development (including time management, leadership skills and more)
Our live and on-demand personal development sessions will help you take control and maximise your effectiveness. Join these sessions to learn practical tips on managing your workload, leading a team and tackling burnout.

Relocating in the UK or abroad
Our relocation seminar sessions will explore the opportunities for moving within the UK and abroad, including what roles are on offer, the logistics involved and the benefits.

Building a portfolio career / doing things differently
Following a non-traditional career path can be daunting, but the rewards in work-life balance and career progression can be substantial. In these online sessions, you’ll hear from clinicians who have done things differently and can help you get started with less than full-time roles, portfolio careers and more.

Clinical webinars*
Earn CPD points by attending our clinical webinars, which will keep you up-to-date with the latest guidelines, evidence and best practice across a range of core topics. All sessions will include live Q&A time with the experts.

Keynote presentations
COVID-19 has presented health and care workers with the biggest challenge for a generation. Our live keynote sessions will feature leading experts from UK healthcare who will discuss how we move forward from the crisis stronger than before.

International Medical Graduates Programme
We are excited to welcome International Medical Graduates to BMJ Live, offering support for your journey to work as a doctor in the UK, from presenting yourself as the best candidate for the position to succeeding in your role.
