Career Planning Workshop

April 28 - 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM AEST

Navigating a career in medicine can be daunting to say the least! Are you unsure of your chosen pathway? Are you yet to choose a pathway or unsure of what you’re best suited to?

Join us across these two interactive sessions as we look at ways to navigate the maze of career options open to you.

The workshop will cover:

  • An introduction to career planning
  • Common areas of career indecision and career confusion for doctors
  • A framework to assist in identifying areas of career interest, strengths and transferable skills to progress career decision making
  • Explanation and discussion around Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality analysis and how personality types impact career decisions
  • Discussion around individual core values and the importance of addressing these in career planning
  • Career mapping exercises to further assist the career planning journey
  • Examples of non-traditional or creative careers that can be pursued by doctors

Individual reports will be provided to attendees and are included as part of the workshop cost. These include: Myers Briggs Personality assessment, Core values assessment and Transferable Skills assessment.

Registrations close on 20th April – very limited places
