Career Guidance for GCSE & A-Level Students
We aim to help and guide GCSE and A-Level students who wish to pursue a career in medicine. Medical admission has a number components and as much complicated it can sound, it can be a fairly straight forward process if the requirements are addressed promptly.
NHS Induction Courses for Doctors
Working in a UK hospital for the first time is a daunting task for a junior doctor who received training in Pakistan. This is one reason why more oversees doctors get into difficulty as they do not understand the system and their responsibilities. APPS facilitates this transition by conducting a one day course and educating them about do and dont?s of the system. The NHS used to run similar courses in the past but due to funding issues it was withdrawn 4-5 years ago.
Professional Advice Forum for Doctors and PLAB
APPS provide support and guidance to medical students and young doctors from the UK as well as those coming from Pakistan. We can help write CVs, provide general advice and guidance on clinical attachments. We are looking for more specialist doctors in all specialities to expand upon this project.
