Committee mentoring programme

Junior doctors talking in a group

Would you like more support in your role as a BMA committee member? 

Do you need medico-political guidance? 

Sign up to our committee mentoring programme

The BMA committee mentoring programme is aimed at helping newer and inexperienced committee members to become more confident in their BMA roles.

Through pairing you with experienced committee members, the programme is designed to support your development specifically within a medico-political environment.

Mentors can offer you support and guidance, encouraging you to manage your own learning and development, and set and achieve your personal goals.

All our mentors have significant medico-political experience and go through CPD (continued professional development) accredited training before we match them with prospective mentees.

Mentoring can have a number of positive effects on:

  • career development, performance and satisfaction

  • access to opportunities

  • development of knowledge and confidence.
