Introduction to the Allied Health Professions – https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/rt/8793785554913874959

When people think of clinical careers in the NHS, the first thing that springs to mind is of Doctors and Nurses, however there are so many other options available.  Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) are a family of healthcare practitioners that work to ensure adults and children can live the fullest lives possible by helping them live with or recover from health problems. 

This webinar is designed for students years 7 – 13 and will provide participants with an overview of the 15 AHPs, the benefits of being an AHP and answer any questions that students may have. 

Discovering Podiatry Webinar – https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/rt/6152436468286720526

Join our live webinar focusing on podiatry, where our facilitator will pose a range of questions to a podiatrist, asking them to reflect on their role and how they got to where they are today.  Podiatrists are specialists in conditions of the lower limb and they belong to the job family called the Allied Health Professions. They play a key role in reducing pain and helping people maintain their mobility and independence, and in many cases the focus of their role is also preventative.

Creating a Back-up Plan to Medicine – https://register.gotowebinar.com/rt/6472234921500315148

Courses such as medicine are incredibly popular with students and where there is popularity there is competition. With as many as 10 applicants for every one place at a medical school, medicine is one of the most competitive courses in the UK.

This webinar will focus on helping you create a plan covering key considerations, and introducing a number of possible alternative clinical roles where you will still be able to make a difference to patients’ lives.
