Flexible Working in Surgery Conference
« View all News items
In a recent membership survey, RCSEd found that 77% of our membership said they considered it important to have the opportunity to work less than full-time, however only a third thought their employer or the profession were supportive of it.
To address concerns and queries on this issue, the College is pleased to be hosting a Flexible Working in Surgery Conference on 25 April 2016.
This conference will consist of a series of lectures and delegates will have the opportunity to talk about their experiences working less than full-time in a surgical career and issues that affect them such as time management, maternity / paternity issues, rota organisation and flexible working near retirement.
Key topics include:
- Training Less Than Full-time: The Benefits and Drawbacks
- Working Less Than Full-time is Not Just for Girls: A Male Perspective on Flexible Working
- Job-sharing in Surgery
- Combining Research, Surgery and Family Life
- Career Trajectories and Making the Most of Opportunities
- Returning to Work
There will also be opportunity for networking and exploring potential mentoring options.
