About this webinar recording

A career as a SAS Anaesthetist should be filled with possibility and opportunity, and with the potential to achieve your career goals.
This webinar is targeted towards any current Specialty Doctor Anaesthetists looking to see how they can develop within a SAS career, and any medical managers looking to see how they might maximise the potential of their SAS team members. It may also be useful to anyone considering becoming a SAS doctor and wondering about the routes such a career might take, and the destinations they might lead to.
This will be the first in a series of planned webinars covering some of these topics in more detail. Watch this space!
