Dr Ruth Silverton is a nephrology SAS doctor and will be running a workshop looking at trainee portfolio strategies on Monday 16 September. Read below to find out why she feels this conference is so crucial to today's medical rentention crisis:

'As outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan, workforce shortage is one of the biggest challenges facing the health service. Cultural, societal and political shifts, a push for increasing flexibility and the call for a modern work-life balance all translate into the current retention crisis. I'm delighted that the RCP has developed this 1-day conference to bring together a wide-range of physicians from all levels to explore and develop solutions to the current crisis. From post Foundation Programme F3 jobs, through flexible training and portfolio careers, to returning to work post-retirement; this day offers a unique and essential opportunity to shape the future of the medical workforce and I look forward to being part of it.'
