Now I’m sure that you’re all familiar with Vitae, which “[champions] the personal, professional and career development of doctoral researchers and research staff in higher education institutions and research institutes”. We’ve got a link to their website on our resources page, because they have loads of information about issues affecting researchers, alongside resources such as sample CVs, and advice and tips.
They also hold regular events that are open to researchers around the country, so they’re good opportunities to meet and share experiences. One interesting looking upcoming event is about careers in medical communications, at Manchester University (details below). I have to admit I don’t check the website as often as I should, but I have become a big fan of RSS feeds of late, so found out about it that way instead (RSS feeds are a bit of a lifesaver for a busy person!).
Anyway, looks like a great event – well worth a look for those of you interested in communicating more about medicine.
