New junior doctors DVD - training the best to be the best

The BMA in Wales hopes a new video, aimed at medical students will help to put Wales on the training map.

BMA Cymru's worked with the Wales Deanery for Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education, to produce this DVD for students, giving an invaluable insight into medical training here.

The aim of the video is to “sell” Wales as a key destination to study medicine and to attract more junior doctors to apply, to complete their postgraduate training here.

The series of short films focuses on five different specialties – Anaesthesia, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Pathology and Psychiatry. It was shot on location at hospitals around Wales, with junior doctors and their seniors revealing in their own words, some of the highlights of training, working and living, in Wales.

Wales has a great deal to offer, both in terms of quality of life and the quality of training provided and this is clear throughout the series of short films. The nation can more than “hold its own” with the best of the rest that the UK has to offer.

All doctors who are short-listed for interview will receive a hard copy of the film film, as part of their information pack.

Some BMA members may spot themselves on the small screen, no doubt Oscar glory now beckons!!!
