"I wanted to move up to a position where I had more influence in the way health services were being run."
"The scheme offered this opportunity and much more - a post-graduate qualification and great personal development."
"I spent my first placement as manager of my host health board's out-of-hours service."
"This was a real job with plenty of operational challenges, including managing a department of over 45 staff."
"I spent my three-month elective in Canada, working with a team developing a child health network across British Colombia."
"My advice to anyone thinking of applying is to make sure you have plenty of enthusiasm and energy. If you're keen to develop a career in an organisation that makes a real difference to people's lives, then the NHS is a rewarding place to work."
