Haematology Taster Day
We are 3 current haematology registrars based in the Severn region who are running a British Society of Haematology sponsored Taster Day that we feel will offer a unique opportunity for junior doctors interested in a career in Haematology. This will be on the 16th November via Zoom. The day will cover reasons to pick haematology as a specialty, what haematology is, opportunities in haematology and applying for haematology.
Details of the day can be found at:
