Hope for junior doctors

summer 2008

From CMF news - summer 2008 - Hope for junior doctors [p4]

It is challenging to see what God is doing among junior doctors today. Meeting junior doctors at various occasions, including weddings, I have found that some are greatly enjoying their training and feel they are in the right place, some have failed to find training posts, have become depressed and are trying to survive on locums, and others have moved far to start new jobs, where they feel unsettled and lonely. In particular, as doctors move around in training posts, many find it hard to integrate into a local church or get to know local Christians.

We are looking for more established CMF members to offer support and hospitality to mobile juniors. If you would like to help in this way, please make yourself known to your CMF regional secretary locally or to me at the CMF office. As a Fellowship, we need to pray for the resolution of issues associated with MTAS (many fear that the next round of job interviews may be as confusing as the last) and do what we can, both professionally and socially, to care for junior doctors.

On the other hand, I have often found myself challenged by the passion and commitment I find in younger members of the Fellowship and am inspired by those who share their faith at work, get involved in medical politics and writing, and risk putting their career in jeopardy by going to serve abroad.
