What is the Oxford Medical Junior Doctor Panel?
Our aim is to develop your abilities so that you can maximise your potential via our various courses, services and materials. If we are to do this effectively, then it’s important that we have a firm grasp on the varied experiences of doctors at all stages from medical student through training programmes and beyond.
Our Junior Doctor Panel are a small group of medical students and junior doctors working in different roles who share their experiences with us and with you via blog-posts and interviews that we share on our website and across social media. They share their success and challenges, what helped them and what has hindered them, along with their thoughts on how to progress and what they have learned along the way.
Whether you are just starting your career or in a senior position and supporting the development of others, it’s well worth listening to and learning from their experiences.
In return, we provide our panel members with free access to a number our courses to support them with their development.
You will find their reflections and contributions on our News & Insights webpage.
