Paediatric Family Project Recruitment OPEN NOW

Dear Paediatric Trainee,

The Paediatric Family Project is recruiting NOW!

Do you want to help boost trainee morale, share your practical tips, help with exams and make new friends? 

The Paediatric Family Project matches trainees across the London deanery using informal peer mentoring. The project aims to provide new ST1 doctors with support during their first year of training (which we all know can be challenging). The mentor needs to be ST4+ to participate in the project.

In the past year we have also launched an ST4 mentoring programme using ST6+ trainees to support ST4 trainees through the transition phase to registrar level. In the upcoming year we anticipate that this will be vitally important as trainees have had less time to prepare for transition due to COVID-19.

As a mentor you will be provided with free online mentoring training, regular email support and a certificate for your portfolio. If you are an ST6+ then you are eligible to mentor both an ST1 and an ST4.

If you would like to participate in the Paediatric Family Project from September 2020, please email the following details to:
