Career development events

We hold career development events across the country for pre- and post-doctoral researchers in biomedicine and health, to give practical skills and the chance to network with colleagues.

The events also offer clinical academic early career researchers help in navigating the clinical academic training pathway and developing a research career. The events are typically chaired by a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences and include research presentations, skills workshops, careers talks and networking opportunities.

Career Development events focus on the current landscape for early career researchers in the UK, and are themed around current opportunities and challenges of relevance to biomedical and health researchers. Some Career Development events are produced in response to the Academy of Medical Sciences’ policy or communications work, where we address the impact of their findings for early career researchers.
