Careers Paths into Primary Care

In-School or 6th forms and thinking of a career in Primary Care?

Why not look at our Dr You programme developed by Health Education England, the programme provides a wealth of information for individuals interested in a career within medicine.

With content written specifically around the needs of the various age groups, the programme aims to widen participation in medical placements through the ease of access.  It delivers an engaging platform from which individuals can access information relevant to the choices they need to make at that point in their career journey.

By bringing together opportunities in one place, students have the ability to view the current collective offer, instead of having to navigate multiple providers and various systems.

The programme provides a range of video case studies, testimonials and myth busters whilst also signposting individuals to additional resources and regional work experience opportunities and activities.

Please note: While the content is relevant to all regions, the funding for the work experience places and events is at present just for the East Midlands, though it is hoped may include opportunities in the West Midlands in the future.
