Simple Beginnings

I'm Rob Bennett, UK trained doctor and founder of theCompleteMedic. I am fully registered with the GMC and I am based on the South Coast of England. I'm currently working towards consultancy using the combined programme and I will shortly be departing to Queensland for the next year.

I started theCompleteMedic during the Covid-19 lockdown after reading through the speciality person specifications while planning my future training. I noticed that many successful applicants had developed a broad portfolio and did not necessarily need to focus on the acquisition of core medical skills. As I sought to build my own portfolio, I was frustrated at the difficulty in finding resources dedicated to furthering my non-medical skills and maximising the quality of my learning during training.

I have created theCompleteMedic to act as a central repository of useful resources and articles to help doctors develop themselves outside of their core medical knowledge. I hope you find the content useful and start to realise there are no limits to what you can achieve as a doctor. Begin tailoring your career to do the things you want today!

If you’re passionate about helping others make the most of their medical careers, then I would love to hear from you. You can contact me at

Here at theCompleteMedic, we realise clinicians often lead busy lives and have little time available to identify the best resources for personal and professional development.

Our mission is to provide easy access to high quality resources for healthcare professionals at all stages of their career.

Busy clinicians are frequently targeted by expensive courses aimed at helping them meet the requirements of training or upcoming appraisals. This does not have to be the case!

We believe personal and professional development should be simple, high quality and low cost.

Clinicians are ideally suited to the role of becoming self-educators. The later years of medical school are largely self-directed and teach individuals the art of critical appraisal.

We have designed theCompleteMedic to connect doctors to the resources they need to enhance their personal and professional development through self-education.
