Doctor Mentor is a society of doctors dedicated to fostering a culture of empowerment, growth, and personal wellbeing in the NHS. Our mission is to provide personalised mentorship to the next generation of NHS doctors, empowering and inspiring them to become successful and fulfilled healthcare professionals.
The programme focusses on three core areas:
1. Up-skilling doctors with national opportunities for applications and further growth.
2. Networking and being part of a nurturing and engaging community.
3. Mentoring, career guidance and wellbeing support.
Run an effective Wellbeing Programme at your trust with Doctor Mentor
Doctors within the NHS are reporting significant challenges within our healthcare system. Research conducted by the 2022 GMC national training survey has demonstrated that 63% of trainees and 52% of doctors working as trainers are at ‘moderate’ or ‘high risk’ of burnout. Burnout can ultimately lead to doctors leaving the profession.
An effective mentoring programme has a positive wellbeing impact on staff, making them feel less stressed and more fulfilled at work. These programmes are incredibly cost effective and can save an average Trust £14.245 million. To learn more, click the button below.
CV Boosting Opportunities
We understand that an important component of a doctor’s wellbeing is to feel fulfilled and be successful at work. This can be very difficult with the heavy workloads that are placed upon us. Which is why we have created a suite of national portfolio opportunities that are easy for any doctor to access. We can also provide you with personal mentoring to up-skill in areas that you want to develop alongside a portfolio of online resources for flexible support that you can access when it is convenient for you.
