Being part of a union means you gain a collective voice in shaping many important factors that could impact your career.
As a TI it marks almost six years of study, which is a massive achievement. Congratulations, you’re almost there!
This is an exciting time for you; there are a lot of things to think about in your final year and union membership is just one. Our advice is to be as organised as possible before starting as a House Officer, so that when you start, you can focus on being a doctor and not all that annoying paperwork.
Unions are key for pushing continued improvements to things like remuneration, training and working conditions. STONZ provides advocacy for any doctor who wants to manage their career and training pathway effectively. We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach, so if you’re considering a specialist career, you need a union that advocates with specialties in mind.
If you’re looking for a union that is truly run by RMOs for RMOs, consider joining the STONZ team. We would be absolutely privileged to be part of your journey and to be part of the network that will support you not just at the start, but also well into the future, wherever this takes you.
To help you make an informed decision about your future we’ve put together this page of useful resources to help answer any questions you may have.
