Medicine is an exciting and rewarding career with many diverse choices available to you. However, choosing and navigating your career path can be challenging. PMCWA have collated some information here to help guide you through this journey.

PMCWA have just launched the Medical Careers Portal to help guide WA’s medical students and junior doctors in learning more about medical career options and how to get into specific training programs. A user is able to search for specific careers or use filters to search for training options/career options that suit them. They can also search the various sites where they can complete terms they require exposure to and other opportunities available at that site.
