The Medical Schools, on the other hand, have mostly been slow to realise the help and support that they can get from their own university career services and this brings us to yet another difficult issue - most medical schools have hundreds of students and most university careers services are overstretched and under resourced as it is.
It will be a challenge to see how the university careers services will be able to meet increased demand from medical students for their services - and if they are not able, or willing, to meet this demand the medical schools will go elsewhere for help and there are many private agencies out there all too willing to be involved in this work.
