A medical role in the defence sector is very different to a traditional medical career path. Working as part of the MOD, you can expect to encounter many unique experiences unlike those on the hospital ward or in a general practice.
The alternative environment can present challenges but there are plenty of benefits and rewards that can outweigh this. A medical defence career opens up a number of opportunities to travel (across the UK and internationally), as well as strong training programmes to help you climb the career ladder.
But, is a medical defence career right for you? Find out more about what to expect in an MOD position, such as the day-to-day duties involved, the skills you’ll need, and the key criteria to consider.
