Feedback from previous attendees.

 “I was fortunate to meet with Marita to review the process for promotion. The jump from Senior Lecturer to Reader is new, and quite complex. We reviewed what is required for submission, discussed institutional strategies and direction. Overall, a very helpful discussion to inform the framework for my application. I did not apply, but am hoping to in the future and this early strategy discussion will prove invaluable.”

Laura Delgaty, Senior Lecturer, School of Medical Education
