BMJ Careers Fair Helps Juniors Affected by MTAS

September 20, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
As the UKs leading medical careers resource, it is perhaps fitting that BMJ Careers should be taking such an active role in helping junior doctors affected by the recent MTAS debacle.

BMJ Careers is continuing to post medical job vacancies on its website and to offer support and advice in its journal, Career Focus.

In addition to these activities, it is planning to run a number of courses and seminars specifically designed to help juniors without training posts and jobs at a BMJ Careers Fair this autumn.
