The Wales Postgraduate Deanery and Cardiff University School of Medicine are hosting a Medical Careers Information Day in the All Nations Centre, Sachville Avenue, Cardiff, CF14 3NY, between 10am and 3.30pm on Saturday 15th October 2011.
This will be particularly useful for medical students from all years and postgraduate Foundation doctors, who may find this an accessible location in which to seek information and contacts to support their future plans.
There will be an opportunity to meet and talk to a cross section of early career and senior doctors from many specialities and to find out about other services and organisations (such as BMA, BMJ) who provide career support. Also, to attend talks given by doctors from a wide range of disciplines about their chosen pathways.
The Explore Internship Programme is run by the Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA), which represents, supports and campaigns for voluntary organisations, volunteers and communities across Wales.
The programme offers a wide range of short term volunteer placements - at the moment they have over 100 opportunities in Wales.
The placements provide a meaningful experience which enhances employability and skills, complements studies and gives an insight into a challenging and rewarding sector.
The internship content differs from regular volunteering as it is designed around a specific project, for a limited period, usually 2-3 months.
The aim of the programme is to provide you with some valuable work experience whilst you deliver a project or service which enhances the work of the organisation and improves the lives of the people it supports.
