CAREER

The CAREER project (Skills to strengthen Reciprocal Attractiveness between doctors and companies) has made it possible to highlight the match between the skills developed by doctors and the skills expected by companies. Carried out between September 2010 and January 2012, it involved more than 30 partners (associations, institutions, companies) and 4,500 participants around two questions:

  • What are the skills of doctors?

  • Do these skills meet the needs of the job market?

This project has been the subject of various studies (qualitative and quantitative) specified below and available for download:

  • Skills and employability of N#1 doctors:

     

    Results of the quantitative survey conducted among 4,500 doctors and recruiters carried out as part of the CAREER project on the match between the skills developed in the doctoral program and the needs of the job market.
