JRMO Mentoring

  • Jrmo mentoring

    Mentoring is integral to the development of doctors in complex, pressured, work-based environments. 
    Drawing from corporate, and medical literature, focus groups, and survey data from our JRMOs we designed model by which junior doctors self-select a mentor based on a video introduction and brokering of the relationship. Our mentors are our Registrars and Fellows. 
    eLearning resources are designed around the stages in a mentor /mentee relationship and documentation is provided to ensure structure and format for the relationship. This is housed on Learning Hero to maximise flexibility and accessibility for you.
