Peer Support Workshop – Supporting the International Medical Graduate

Summary of Workshop

We invite our colleagues to join us in a workshop designed to empower them to provide mentorship and support to new international medical graduates as they begin their training. The workshop will equip participants with the confidence and skills necessary to make a difference in the lives of their mentees. 

What will be covered? 
  • Describe the similarities and differences between coaching and mentoring, and determine which approach is best suited for a given situation 
  • Develop enhanced skills, including active listening, supportive and challenging questioning, and techniques that facilitate effective communication and problem-solving 
  • Build rapport with mentees, respectfully challenge assumptions and limiting beliefs, and enable them to see the bigger picture and generate more options 
  • Reflect on strategies to support the integration of international medical graduates into the NHS, drawing on their own experience and insights 
  • We believe that our colleagues’ expertise and commitment can make a real difference in the lives of international medical graduates, who face many challenges when they start their training. This workshop is an opportunity to share knowledge, build relationships, and support each other in making a positive impact.
