|dc.description||The Postgraduate Medical and Dental Board has the function of providing career guidance for doctors. This is an important but difficult task. Career Guidance is concerned with the provision of advice to individual doctors as to careers they might choose, and once a choice has been made it is concerned with providing guidance as to how to progress in that career. It is not practicable nor indeed possible for the Board to provide individual career guidance to every young doctor in training. Career guidance and advice of that nature must be provided on a personal level by those who know the doctor and his/her aptitudes and abilities and by those involved in providing training programmes. Ultimately decisions in relation to career choice must be made by the individual bearing in mind his/her own talents and interest, while assessing the advice given by others and availing of the opportunities presented. It will never be easy to arrive at a final decision. The advice and information given to a young doctor will playa crucial role in helping him/her to come to a decision. This information should be readily available and there should be opportunities to obtain more should it be required.||en_GB|
