RACS has consulted with mentoring experts and reviewed the mentoring programs over a number of years in order to provide a practical toolkit for surgery.
In May 2016 RACS published Mentoring: A Practical Guide which provides clear guidance for mentors, mentees and establishing a mentoring relationship. Using this guide, the mentor and mentee are required to set specific guidelines for communication.
Participants are encouraged to attend the mentoring program as part of the Annual Scientific Congress. Participants are also expected to participate in program evaluation.
Applications are now closed. Applications for the 2020 program will open late in 2019.
