Welcome To Beyond The Ward
Alternative, Non-Clinical Careers For Doctors


Using Your Skills In Multiple Ways

A medical training is one of the most versatile of all professional qualifications. Beyond The Ward is a new resource developed by a doctor for other doctors. It is intended to serve as your guide to non-clinical career options that enable you to continue serving patients and promoting health.

It is undoubtedly a real privilege to be an NHS doctor. The NHS is the finest example of a national health system in the world. However, many doctors may be unaware of other ways to apply their skills that may extend beyond direct clinical practice. Non-clinical careers enable doctors to leverage their capabilities, helping to develop new treatments and innovations.

We believe that clinical and non-clinical careers are synergistic and united in their objectives – to promote health and wellbeing of patients and to drive constant improvement in the way healthcare is delivered. Non-clinical roles will be an important part of our response to the coronavirus pandemic.

We aim to combine tailored advice, information, practical guidance and targeted news to help you understand further ways to apply your medical training. We run informative "how to get into Pharma" workshops as well as opportunities to support medical device innovation alongside your NHS work.

Beyond the Ward offers the complete guide to alternative, non-clinical careers for healthcare workers.
