We know that as a teacher it can sometimes be a bit difficult accessing the latest, most up-to-date and accurate information about possible careers for your students. This webpage has been set up by Health Education England, part of the National Health Service (NHS), to provide an authoritative guide to young people considering a career as a doctor, and to parents and teachers, who may be helping them along the way. There are videos of doctors from different types of backgrounds reflecting on how they got into a medical career, and information aimed at the students themselves, their families, and schools. We hope you will find this a useful resource in providing advice and guidance about subject and career choices. Just as there’s no ‘typical’ student, there’s no ‘typical’ doctor, let’s help open the doors to the profession as wide as possible.
