Peer Support Network 2018 - Liverpool 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 28 November 2018
  • Day 2: Friday 18 January 2019
  • Day 3: Friday 26 April 2019

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