What: We are requesting physician mentors for our incoming 3rd year U.K. College of Medicine medical students. We are simply asking our mentors to support and encourage our medical students as they transition from two years of academic studies to the clinical world. This is not about shadowing, it is about relationships. The program will run from September, 2019 to May, 2020.
How: LMS will match the mentor to a mentee based on a short profile survey. It is that simple. You and your mentor will decide the method (in person meeting, phone call, email, text) and how often to meet. This is our third year of the program. Most of our mentorship pairs have contact once a month. Many meet at the LMS Dinner Meetings throughout the year.
Why: Help shape the future leaders of the practice of medicine.
