BASHH / BHIVA Mentor Training Course

Mentoring skills for Sexual Health, Reproductive Health and HIV Consultants and SAS doctors

9th December 2016


Medical Research Council Head Office, 13th Floor, One Kemble Street, London, WC2B 4AN


The benefits of mentoring for doctors are increasingly recognised, and an increasing number of doctors are taking on mentoring roles. BASHH / BHIVA run a successful mentoring programme and this tailored workshop aims to support and update doctors already in mentoring roles as well as those either preparing to become mentors or those who are considering taking on such a role. The course will also contribute towards non-clinical CPD and may be of particular interest to Educational Supervisors.

There is opportunity to explore the roles of both mentors and mentees and discuss ideas and models that you will be able to put into immediate practice.

The course is tailored towards doctors working in sexual health / SRH / HIV but will also equip attendees with the skills to mentor doctors from other specialities within their own organisation.

Learning Outcomes

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 – including co-mentoring arrangements
  • use appropriate techniques, including expectation setting and reviewing, to establish and sustain an effective mentoring relationship
  • recognise the ethical dilemmas that can arise in mentoring relationships
  • reflect on their own personal development needs as a mentor
