Access to the Mentorship Programme is open to College Fellows and Members who are seeking mentoring as their careers develop, perhaps when changing roles, with established, trained College mentors. It is suitable for Doctors, Surgeons, Dentists, Podiatrists, Travel Health Specialists, Nurses and Academics. This course is also open to non-members. Please note that this course is in person only.
As a mentor, you will play a key role within the College, supporting mentees in their professional development, as well as broadening your own mentoring skill-set and diversify your network of colleagues.
All of our mentors are provided with mentorship training before being able to be matched with a suitable mentee.
All of our mentors are required to complete the Mentor Training Course, which is offered to our members at a nominal cost for the three days of training. The training concentrates on the skills needed to be a successful mentor and is based upon a framework known to be of benefit in mentoring relationships. Over the course of a number of workshops and group sessions, participants present their own issues and opportunities; practicing the skills necessary to apply this framework effectively.
The Mentor Training Course runs over 3 dates with a Refresher Day taking place.
In order to become a Mentor, it is compulsory to attend all 3 dates:
