Medacs Healthcare are delighted to announce a commitment to deliver a further 25 CPD accredited courses for our locum doctors in 2015 - all free of charge and in partnership with BMA Careers.

Throughout 2015 we will be running the following courses;

  • Revalidation, Reflection and Appraisal,
  • Negotiating and Influencing,
  • Time Management,
  • Management Essentials,
  • Getting a Job – CV and Interviews.

Dates and locations of the courses will be announced shortly. You can provisionally register your interest by visiting our locum doctor careers centre here.

Course feedback

The courses have been extremely well received by our doctors so far:

  • ‘Thank you for organising a wonderful session last week, it was very useful and well organised’ – Dr Saba Nazir
  • ‘I will definitely, rather already have, recommended to my friends. It's really helpful course for the preparation of our revalidation & appraisal. I always appreciate Medacs because it's always helpful for all the doctors in all ways.’ – Dr Raana
  • ‘The course just clarified so much of the demands expected for revalidation, especially how to think about the aspect of reflective practice. I would recommend to all doctors who are not yet revalidated and need some support on how to complete the paperwork.’ –Dr Naraynsingh

Commenting on the announcement Natalie Fitzpatrick, Business Development Manager for the British Medical Association added:

“Medacs Healthcare are committed to supporting locum doctors with non-clinical professional development and support - in particular around revalidation, reflection and appraisal which can often present unique challenges for Locums. Last year BMA Careers delivered a number of CPD accredited courses for Medacs Healthcare’s locums and the feedback from the doctors was that they were hugely relevant, helpful and informative. In 2015 we are looking forward to delivering a larger programme of courses designed to support Medacs Healthcare’s locums and also offering a wider range of topics including communications, management, leadership and career development”.
