Mentoring skills workshop

Our mentoring skills workshop has been developed to support doctors and allied health professionals who are already in a mentoring position, as well as those preparing to take on such a role.

The workshop gives 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.
