working as a specialty doctor or GP

NHS Medical Careers has information on the full range of medical specialties that you can train in across the NHS. In partnership with the medical royal colleges, we have compiled data on what it is like to work in each specialty, the types of patients, disease and conditions you are likely to encounter throughout your career, the training pathways you can follow and a whole host of statistics to help you understand what your future career prospects in that specialty could be. 

Use the menu on the left to research information about specialties that interest you and bookmark any that you wish to refer to again in the future.

We have seven or eight pages of information for each specialty. Don't forget, there are over 60 specialties and many of the specialties are included within the medicine and surgery pages!
