Development opportunities

The Trust encourages you to develop your skills and expertise. You can do this in a number of ways:


This is being introduced for all doctors, not just consultants, from December 2012, so make sure you are aware of the requirements.

Licensed doctors will have to revalidate, usually every five years, by having regular appraisals that are based on the GMC's core guidance for doctors, Good Medical Practice.

At King's we encourage 360-degree appraisals.

Clinical attachments

You can approach individual consultants at King's by writing directly to them and enclosing a copy of your curriculum vitae. However, please note that our consultants are inundated with requests for clinical attachments and securing an opportunity at this busy hospital is extremely difficult.

If you are enquiring from abroad we recommend you check the visa regulations for your intended stay in the UK.
