Peer Support Network 2018 - Birmingham cohort

The Peer Support Network brings together doctors who are working towards their RCP Educator accreditation. The network is a blend of three 1-day workshops, together with access to a dedicated online site for discussion and activities.

By booking onto this Peer Support Network course, you will be automatically registered for all three face-to-face workshops.

  • Day 1: Wednesday 17 January 2018
  • Day 2: Tuesday 6 March 2018
  • Day 3: Monday 18 June 2018

Please ensure you are able to attend all three dates listed above before booking onto this course.

During the course, delegates will undertake two small-scale, educational workplace projects. They will use the workshops, as well as the online forums and activities, to discuss these projects, refine ideas, and provide support to their peers. A brief report of these projects is submitted and assessed by the RCP tutors.

I wish I had attended years ago! Great to know the theory behind education.
