Careers Evening

That same evening, CAT will be hosting a Careers Evening online at 6pm, which is designed to provide some clarity around the consultant interview and application process along with the different career paths within our specialty. There will be a speaker on the consultant interview and application process followed by short talks from four consultants representing ICU, Paediatrics, Obstetrics and Pain Medicine. The panel discussion will conclude with a Q&A session, providing attendees with the opportunity to ask questions and engage with our panel of speakers. We believe that this event will provide valuable insights into the various career paths and provide practical information on preparing for life after the training scheme.
