One of the deepest, most profound and most enduring influences on a young medical specialist is a great (or terrible) mentor.
If you are looking to gain skills in mentoring and coaching, consider using Coaching and Mentoring Training Course offered by pdtraining in Christchurch, Wellington and other cities in New Zealand.
The next generation of our country’s medical decision-makers and policy-setters is even now being shaped by medical elder-statesmen with many years of the best formal, structured training and education in the world in the art of diagnosis and the science of patient treatment, but little or no formal training the art of mentoring.
What makes this troubling is that, while you may diagnose and/or treat thousands of patients in a long and distinguished career, those many young professionals you train will collectively diagnose and treat tens of thousands of patients.
To best leverage your time and maximise the amount of your wisdom, experience and knowledge that is actually remembered and implemented throughout the careers of those you mentor, it is time to get more training, this time not from a medical professional, but from a professional in the field of training, and more specifically mentoring.
Do not re-invent the wheel. Just as you have taken advantage of medical advances, to give your patients the best outcomes, take advantage of the latest training and mentoring techniques, to pass on your hard-won experience in the most effective way, to the benefit of both those you mentor, and those they treat.
You are already a medical expert. Now it is time to become an expert in passing on your knowledge, attitudes and techniques to those you are charged with shaping.
