The BAAPS Mentorship scheme has been created to provide an ongoing long-term training and supportive relationship between young plastic surgeons towards the end of their training and into their early consultant careers and experienced senior colleagues. The hope is to create a mutually beneficial long term relationship.
For the Mentee, they will benefit from tailored teaching and observation in the operating theatre, in clinic and in the running of a private practice. They will also participate in audit and research, with a view to presentations and publications of their work. It is hoped/envisaged that the relationship that will have started at the beginning of the Mentorship will continue into their early consultant career with holistic support for their practice - clinical, managerial and pastoral.
Please email your C.V with your top 3 host centres to firstname.lastname@example.org by 23:59 on the 28th February 2022.
There will be a shortlisting process and the top 3-4 applicants will be invited to interview for each position.
Interviews will commence immediately after with dates selected by the host centres.
These are paid for roles with a guideline of £8.000 for the 3 month mentorship.
Start dates may be variable but can start anywhere from the 4th April 2022.
*Please note, should your preferred host centres not have availability for a placement, you may be asked to consider an alternative host centre as an option.
