Careers Service Survey for Foundation Doctors

Hello, my name is Victoria and I am one of the Severn careers fellows. We have created a survey designed to identify gaps in the careers service and gain a better understanding of how the service could be improved. Responses are anonymous and we welcome all comments to help us develop a useful resource for foundation trainees.

The link to the survey is below:

National Virtual Teaching and Prize Opportunity For Junior Doctors

Dear Trainees

**Please note that teaching slots will be filled on a 'first-come first-served' basis**

We invite you to participate in the National Medical Leadership Teaching Programme, which is a free widening access event with year 13 students participating from over 1000 schools across the UK.

We are looking for enthusiastic junior doctors and dentists who would enjoy spending a day virtually teaching secondary school students who have been selected from schools across the country based on their desire to become future clinicians. This is an excellent teaching opportunity and we are looking for mock interviewers who will be able to lead a mock panel/mmi interview in person. All of the questions and mark schemes will be provided in advance. All that we require is for you to be willing to give up your time to help students gain some valuable practice for their real interviews.

There are a selection of 8 opportunities to teach and 16 prizes available for the best teacher and mentor involved in the day. You are welcome to participate in more than one session if you wish. The teaching days are taking place online, so all the you would need is access to a computer and strong internet connection. There is no travel required.

You can choose to attend any of the following dates:
27th November
28th November
18th December
19th December
29th January
30th January
26th February
27th February

You will receive a teaching certificate from the Presidents Dr Olivia Coldicutt, Dr Priya Chohan and Dr Sherri-Ann Pegg. We will also be providing written feedback from students and there is a prize for the best Teacher (interviewer) on the day.

If you are interested in taking part please email mentors@medicmentorfamily.org or alternatively, you can ring 07429146083 if you would like some more information before taking part.

Good luck and thank you for volunteering!
