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.
Earn CPD points by attending our free 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.
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.
