During the very interesting and stimulating meeting on ICT & Society run by the Faculty of Health Informatics in mid December I advertised a Careers and Professionalism Zone that we are intending to hold at this year's Health Informatics Congress (HC2010).
The aim of this zone is to increase awareness of health informatics as a career prospect for budding new students looking for career options in ICT; and to provide careers advice and guidance to those already engaged in the profession.
We are aiming to provide tables for professional organisations, and for educational establishments, as well as some one-to-one meeting facilities for individual career guidance. There will be limited space available for stands, and they will not be elaborate (to cut down on cost) as we are holding this outside the main exhibition area.
We already have further and higher education bodies coming from Sussex (who are jointly organizing the zone) and from around the Birmingham area, but would like to extend an opportunity for other educational bodies to attend (as long as it is against the purpose outlined above.)
The event is at the ICC in Birmingham and will run from Tuesday April 27th to Thursday 29th.
