Career Pathway of an EM Doc

dr-hibbertWe’re looking for some volunteers (Looking at the SpRs! 🙂 to write a brief paragraph outlining what they’ve done in their training so far – e.g. what jobs they’ve worked, did they work abroad, take time out to do research etc.    Nothing major, just something short so that new EM docs can see the wide range of options available to them in Emergency Medicine!

Any volunteers, feel free to get in touch! – Andrewunder-construction
