RadReach mentoring scheme
The RCR has made a strong commitment to addressing inequality and improving inclusivity for the benefit of its members, Fellows, and ultimately, the patients they treat. The RadReach mentoring scheme aims to fundamentally transform training at an elemental level and offer continued support for final year medical students and/or foundation scheme doctors from a widening participation background.
All mentors and mentees will be paired through a matching process and formal training will be provided. Once matched, the commitment for mentors and mentees will be for one year. We suggest you have eight one-hour meetings over this period. The RCR Mentoring Team will check in with mentor and mentees throughout the year to offer support and answer queries.
“We recruit mentors who are passionate about widening participation to improve our workforce and the care our patients receive. Mentors will receive training and can be radiology and oncology registrars, Fellows and consultants. RadReach is not the usual mentoring scheme – RadReach is a long-term growing community.”
– Dr Jade Scott-Blagrove, founder of WPMN
