  1. Anyone interested in getting some forensic psychiatry experience, in a trully unique environment that doesn't exist in greece? Must be able to function as a junior doctor (basic medicine= FY2+)+ basic psychiatric experience highly desirable. Would also be suitable for a greek trainee clocking time/ consultant equivalent wanting more experience (as long as they were able to do some 'junior' type work). Will offer plenty of support, whatever your career stage, to help you achieve your goals. 6m posts available (paid work , not 'observer'= need GMC). A suitable/ willin
  2. Working in the UK , living in the UK is really not much better to working in Greece, just different. Lots of people hate it here for a myriad of reasons you have not even considered...They go to Canada/Oz would you consider those destinations? 35 (38+) is not a problem, language proficiency can be acquired , previous degrees / non medical experience counts for nothing these days of absolute standardization having kids per ce is not a problem FY2= apply to whatever + 6-8years(depending on specialty)= CCT= consultant post How old will the kids be
  3. Personally I don't think the UK is a good bet for people at the same stage as you, not any more... I'd look into Sweden/ similar. Erasmus? You can always approach greeks in the UK on your own (sorry can't help you myself, I'm a psychiatrist)
  4. Elective, attachment etc, whatever you can find. Brexit has not happened...yet... WORST case scenario,some thoughts: There may not be automatic recognition of medical/specialist qualifications (exams like Canada/OZ?) Traveling might require visa, working might entail all sorts of hassle (leave to remain , work permits etc) Doctors are not really valued in the UK- they are too expensive and can be substantially replaced by other professionals (my personal view). If you plan to live here long term your loved ones etc may need visa/etc just to come visi
  5. Google the application scoring criteria to get a better idea where to focus your efforts. Always a plus if you can find some way to experience the system from within (not because you will score higher in the application but because you'll have more life experience to answer any questions). Have you considered the Brexit implications? If applying for GMC rego post Brexit might be in for a nasty surprise... (The 11ths catchphrase was Geronimo)
  6. Let's agree to disagree on this one... I call my junior SHO,HR departments accidentally advertise all sorts of inaccuracies... There is no officially recognised role for an SHO.Theres specialty trainees , there's SAS doctors, few 'associate specialists'. 'SHOs' on a junior doc/SAS contract are just that,not really SHOs SHO is a term of endearment in my book, a relic of the past. Anyone who advertises an SHO post should be approached with causion as they have not kept up with the times/may offer odd/ unsupported local T&C s of employment.
  7. SHOs went our of fashion in 2007...Sweet Jesus... Google your Royal College of interest and check out the trainee section. Google the person specification. Misconceptions applicable to most newbs : No one cares about 'Greek med school vs Prague vs Republic of Nowhere ', or grade average ,as long as you have GMC rego There are no silly foreigner quotas for training posts in the UK- You are an equal (equally messed up by Brexit with the other Europeans). I have never felt anything less than an equal, even when being treated badly... No-one cares/understands w
  8. The NHS is really struggling- not enough doctors around wanting to do psych... A good doctor, who speaks English has an excellent chance of getting straight into training. Your biggest concern should be Brexit :/
  9. Its a case of timing: If you've missed the application period for psych CT :consider LAS FY/Locum in psychiatry If not, apply for both and aim for psych CT If you've got GMC rego and actually want to do psych, I can get you in touch with the lady who organises rotas in Leeds
  10. You need to somehow explain any gaps in employment ie family commitments ,I was preparing for the USMLE(why didn't you go to the US?) etc If you can satisfy foundation competencies apply to CT1 psych,Id say,how is it going to be easier to function as an FY2?You might end up starting with psych anyway! Happy to help/advise anyone who is interested in psych. DOI Psychiatrist
  11. 1. get into training first. 'Alternative medicine' does not follow the medical model. You don't need to be a doctor to offer this service... 2.Google the RC of GP. Call the greek authorities. 3.you don't understand how things work, and you barely know where you need/want to go....not a good place to be. Why do you want to do research? What is your field of interest? USA: visa restrictions, medical licencing issues. UK: Brexit, GMC, Rest Of EU : similar. How many languages do you speak? 4. The UK does not care where you are from. There are no IMGs quotas. Nobody wants to be a GP
  12. Psychiatry opportunities NOW (NHS) Looking for an SHO equivalent/Trust doctor In Leeds (its a decent city, flights straight to Athens via Manchester, 2h 15min to London) Must speak English Must be certified for at least FY1 competencies (ie not a medical student. Ideally post agggrotico, no significant psych experience needed other than willingness to learn) Must have GMC registration NO UK experience necessary Let me know if you are interested. (I am not a recruiter, I am not a locum agency, this is an honest and true request for someone to jo
  13. Finish your AgrotiKo Get your GMC rego sorted 3m before the end of AgrotiKo Email psych 'training programme directors ' anywhere in the UK and attach your CV.Be honest about your career plans and need for experience. Await replies (LOADS of job vacancies at core training level throughout the country ) Start with a LAS/LAT psych, whatever comes. Slide into your core training job of choice. Get your cct in 6 years. ..and migrate to Australia You will not jeopardise patient safety as a new CT1 psych without prior experience. All you need is a bit of common sence and a willingness to learn.
  14. Staff grades are like gold dust. Sho's are nowhere to be found. There are good ex-trainees choosing to locum because the jobs advertised are not attractive and they are buying time. The Trust's are struggling and are choosing to 'restructure' rather than re-advertise jobs following retirement. Applying for a job doesn't mean you'll get it , even if there are no other candidates,because you have to be deemed 'appoint a ble'. Greek specialists don't have 'approved clinician status'. This requires a 3 month supervised practice period, not to mention learning all about the Mental Health Ac
