Our SuppoRTT peer mentoring programme is open to all Yorkshire and Humber Postgraduate Doctors in Training (PGDiTs) who are currently out of training.
You can have up to 4 sessions with a trained peer mentor if you are currently out of training, or are planning on going out of training and have completed an absence planning form.
Peer mentors are Postgraduate Doctors in Training (PGDiTs) who have undertaken peer mentoring training and are interested in supporting others. Your peer mentoring relationship is confidential and is completely independent from your training pathway.
If you create a MentorNet account but do not choose a mentor within three months, then your account will be deactivated. If this occurs you can return in the future to pursue peer mentoring, please contact us and we will be able to reactivate your account.
What is Peer Mentoring?
Peer mentoring is a safe non-judgemental space providing time and opportunity to discuss your needs and priorities on returning to work, where you feel valued and heard, with practical support where needed.
Mentoring will be led by the mentee’s agenda and bespoke to their needs.
Mentoring is holistic and recognises that mentees are whole people with full lives, and as such mentees can discuss anything relevant to themselves.
The mentor and mentee will agree in advance arrangements for sessions and time/communication boundaries, e.g., duration and frequency of sessions, best mode of contact.
