Recent Graduate Retreats

Annual Event

Our recent graduates face different opportunities and threats and possess different strengths & weaknesses to students or fully fledged graduates. This is the reason we first started to host recent graduate retreats in addition to the annual IMPACT conference which is more geared towards students.  We came to realise that the recent grads needed a forum where they could express their frustrations and concerns, whilst sharing the experience and in some cases the burden of being a junior doctor without discouraging and putting fear into the hearts of our students.

The feedback from recent grad retreats which have been held on an annual basis since 2010 is that this format allows for un-censored sharing of pains and struggles encountered by junior doctors. It is also a venue where recent graduates can encourage each other to keep growing in their faith and discuss practical ways to imitate Christ in the workplace.  

Our hope is that one day we will have more frequent recent graduate retreats all around the country to allow for more opportunities for fellowship and encouragement.
