Specialty explorer

Get help with making an informed decision about your specialty 

Specialty explorer is a tool for British Medical Association members that supports your research into medical specialties and provides you with a personalised report. It's quick, easy to use and covers all specialties in the UK. 

Reflect on what matters to you most through a series of questions. Your personalised report will detail 10 specialties that match your preferences prompting you to think about specialties you may not otherwise have considered. You’ll also receive details about where to find further support, so you can focus your research.
