Royal College of Radiologists - Mentoring Scheme 2016
12 February 2016
Mentoring programme for new radiology consultants
In 2014-2015 I supported the Royal College of Radiologists to develop a pilot mentoring scheme for new consultants. This was a very successful scheme and so the RCR are rolling this out in 2016 as a key part of their service.
What pilot participants said...
“I do have quite a few colleagues who haven’t been a part of the scheme, who I can’t compare directly with them and say ‘oh I’m so much better than they are’, but I probably have moved a lot further than they have.”“…it’s not just collecting a membership fee, but the College wants to provide something for us apart from the training. That gave me more motivation to get involved with the College basically. So I think if not for this I’m not sure when I would have come into this building or seen the College or got involved with the College staff as such.”
“I think it really, really helps you to do a very good high quality appraisal, the sorts of things we’ve been learning, not just as a mentor but having this exchange, and relationship with my own mentee, I think it’s been fantastic.”“I felt part of the College, of creating something and here, I suddenly felt like I was participating in a very important thing with the College, I definitely felt that.”To view the poster presentation on the pilot at AMEE:CLICK HEREDates for training and Induction:
