WELLBEING AND WORK-LIFE BALANCE
You need to be able to take care of yourself before you can take care of others.
Choosing to become a doctor is a challenging path that requires dedication, hard-work and resilience. However, resilience is not necessarily working harder than others, it is about working smartly, flexibly and also taking care of yourself so that you have the stamina to achieve your goals without burning out. Part of the mentoring process is to ensure that students not only have careers guidance to make correct decisions but also to provide pastoral support by keeping students motivated and happy along this journey. Mentors act as excellent, achievable role-models that students can look up to, but also understand the importance of your psychological and emotional well-being. For this reason, we have created a variety of mentoring programmes from long-distance to face-to-face mentoring so that students can select the process that they are most comfortable with.
How TO BECOME A GOOD DOCTOR?
Learning about effective time-management and prioritisation skills combined with a healthy and sustainable lifestyle is essential in ensuring that you can achieve your goals.
We always ensure that resilience teaching is incorporated into all of our programmes to achieve this. It is also important that all of the teaching is enjoyable and that you have the opportunity to make friends on this journey who will provide an additional support network on top of your Mentors, your family and your school.
