The ICS has established a list of individuals who are willing to serve as mentors. Using the list just identify and approach the mentor of your choice. After the mentor’s agreement, you can establish a relationship and discuss expectations. The rest is then over to you! You can view this list and learn more about the scheme here.
In order to support your choice of mentor the ICS Education Committee have prepared these two videos from Elise De and Margot Damaser when speaking at the ICS Early Career Session in Philadelphia at ICS 2018. Elise is the current Chair of the committee and Margot previously spent 6 years on the committee. Their expertise and personal experience of selecting mentors, and being mentors will provide you with invaluable knowledge whilst seeking an ICS Mentor.

Become a mentee
If you would you like to participate in the ICS mentorship programme and share your knowledge as an experienced physician/ nurse / physiotherapist to a trainee, please complete the form below. This can involve psycho-social support, career guidance, role modelling, help with communication etc. You may need to both encourage and challenge to help coach your mentee. You will be their “cheerleader”. This is not a role providing counselling or helping to make major decisions but rather to give constructive feedback. You will have to agree to have your e-mail accessible to members to contact you.
If you would be interested in becoming an ICS mentor then sign up today!
Please note that both mentor and mentee need to be ICS Member to be involved in the scheme. Its open to all disciplines and is for early career professionals and professionals at various levels of expertise. Please note that the mentor has the right to decline to be a mentor from the outset.
