Are you an aspiring paediatrician? Keen to learn about different career paths in paediatrics? Looking for tips on building a CV to apply for training? Join us at this year's Paediatric Careers Conference.

Enjoy a day of inspirational talks from recent successful applicants to paediatric training, current paediatric trainees, and consultants working in a host of paediatric specialities, and find out what makes paediatrics a unique and exciting career!

All proceeds from the conference will go to Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, helping to fund our life-changing projects and services for young patients, their families and the NHS staff caring for them in hospital.
