Less-than-full-time training and working

Print Email

With the increase in the number of women entering medicine, workforce planning will be crucial. Most women doctors are young and will have children (43% are under the age of 35). More part-time positions will be required.

Slot shares have become the preferred way of training part-time, but funding for super-numary posts will still be necessary, especially in smaller specialties. It should be accepted practice (i.e not at the discretion of local deaneries) for the parent of a child under the age of 3 to work less-than-full-time – either the mother, father or a combination of both – if he/she wishes.
