We are delighted to announce the launch of a new mentoring initiative in RCPI. 11 mentors, all of whom are experienced doctors, are now available to help RCPI Trainees who would like extra support.
The mentors are listed below. These doctors have received specialised training on how to mentor and can help Trainees who are dealing with issues such as:
This confidential mentoring service will operate on a self-referral basis, at no cost to Trainees. We are now accepting requests.
Trainees who contact RCPI to request support will be matched to the mentor who is best equipped to offer support for that particular Trainee. Our mentors will share their knowledge and experience and will help Trainees achieve the best results. Our mentors are committed to supporting Trainees’ development.
If you are currently on an RCPI training programme (including our international programmes), and you feel you would benefit from mentoring, please contact Hadas Levy B.A. M.Sc. Psych, Manager of our Health and Wellbeing department, and she will contact you to arrange an initial consultation before matching you with the most suitable mentor. Hadas can be contacted at HadasLevy@rcpi.ie
There is no charge for this service and it is strictly confidential.
It is important to note this is not a counselling service and doctors who require treatment for mental illness or acute stress are advised to avail of support from agencies listed here: https://www.rcpi.ie/physician-wellbeing/where-to-go-for-help-and-advice/
