The Younger Fellows Committee are piloting a facilitated
mentoring program open to all Fellows of the College within their
first 10 years of gaining Fellowship. The program is voluntary and
a maximum of 20 pairs will be assigned.
RACS have consulted with mentoring experts and reviewed the
mentoring programs over a number of years in order to provide a
practical toolkit for surgery.
In May 2016 RACS published Mentoring: A Practical Guide which provides
clear guidance for mentors, mentees and establishing a mentoring
relationship. Using this guide, the mentor and mentee are required
to set specific guidelines for communication.
Participants are encouraged to attend the mentoring
program as part of the 2018 Annual Scientific Congress in Sydney.
Participants are also expected to participate in program
Applications close Monday 9 April 2018.
