Description

Meet a mentor poster 

Many of you have expressed an interest in having the opportunity to find out more about the benefits of an informal mentoring scheme. We will be holding a Mentoring Workshop on the afternoon of Thursday 27 September (from 4.00pm onwards) in Lecture Theatre 3, Medical School Building. There will be an introduction from Professor Roy Bicknell and Kate Crane  (POD, Senior Consultant & Business Partner to the College of Medical & Dental Sciences). We will be hearing different perspectives from both mentors and mentees from the College. Professor Stephen Watson (Professor of Cardiovascular Sciences and Cellular Pharmacology, Nature/NESTA mid-career award for creative mentoring in science) has very kindly offered to speak on the benefits of having a mentor.

The event will conclude with an informal cheese and wine social to give you the opportunity to approach College mentors. For catering purposes, we would be grateful if you could register your interest in attending this event.

Aim is to provide an overview of mentoring to prospective mentors.

Objectives are:

By the end of the session delegates will be able to...

o Explain the role of mentor and mentee
