When most people think of medical careers, doctors and nurses working in hospitals or general practices usually come to mind. But in reality, the medical sector is far broader than that, with a wide range of roles and working environments.
Doctors and nurses are needed beyond hospital wards and local surgeries. Your skills as a medical professional can be adapted to different settings – some of the less common being in prisons, the military, the criminal justice sector, and specialist clinics. Choosing an alternative career path to a traditional medical role can be both challenging and rewarding, bringing with it a whole host of unique experiences and responsibilities.
