Sign up as a UKMSA Mentor
From medical student to foundation doctor to speciality training, medical career choices are a daunting prospect. The UKMSA mentoring scheme aims to support medical students in preparing themselves for life beyond graduation. This includes advice on CV development, how to choose a speciality, and how to ensure they stand out at the time of application to speciality, as well as advice on how to maintain a work-life balance.
As currently practising clinicians, you are ideally situated to advise students in this way. Once you have signed up as a mentor you will be paired with a student interested in your particular field of medicine/surgery who be provided with your email address and asked to make first contact. From that point on it is expected that you will answer their queries via email, and after a 6 month period the UKMSA will ask the student for feedback. This, along with a certificate will then be emailed to you as proof of further professional development for your portfolio.
