Mentoring skills workshop

Our mentoring skills workshop has been developed to support doctors already in a mentoring position as well as those preparing to take on such a role. It will give attendees an opportunity to explore the role of a mentor, as well as ideas and models that you will be able to put into immediate practice.

Upcoming mentoring workshops

There are no dates currently available to book.

If you would like to be notified of new workshop dates as they are released please email education.courses@rcplondon.ac.uk.

Alternatively, if your NHS trust is interested in establishing a mentoring scheme* (for any specialty or grade of doctor) we can deliver this training in-house at your hospital. For more information please contact education.courses@rcplondon.ac.uk.

*Please note we can offer training for both mentors and mentees in-house.

Course content

By the end of this workshop doctors will be able to:

  • identify the role of a mentor
  • outline the basic structure of a successful mentoring relationship
  • use appropriate techniques, including objective setting and reviewing, to establish and sustain an effective mentoring relationship
  • recognise the ethical dilemmas that can arise in mentoring relationships
  • reflect on your own personal development needs as a mentor.

Who should attend?

Doctors of all specialties and grades who are interested in taking on a mentoring role in their workplace, or who already have mentoring responsibilities and would like to improve their practice.
