Medic Mentor Awards Evening

Celebrating Success Amongst our Current and Future Healthcare Leaders

Join us on the 2nd December to network with our Special Guests and meet our new Scholars!

Keynote Speaker: Mr Anthony Roberts, Director of Leadership and Innovation for the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons

Anthony is responsible for the delivery of the strategic ambition to become a Royal College with leadership and innovation at its heart. Leadership work includes the implementation of a programme to support the next generation of veterinary leaders and develop leadership opportunities across the veterinary professions, and the completion of the RCVS governance review to ensure that we are an effective and efficient organisation, better able to lead the profession and serve the needs of the public. Innovation incorporates the development of initiatives to ensure the veterinary professions are at the centre of innovation in the animal health sector, to position the professions as open to innovation, and to ensure the RCVS serves to foster innovation whilst continuing to protect animal health and welfare.

Anthony also leads the development and delivery of a programme of work to prepare the College and the profession for the impact of Brexit and the implementation of evidence-based measures to drive the transition to a supportive ‘learning-culture’ in the veterinary professions.

Awards: Medic Mentor Scholarships, Professional Awards and School Society Leaders

We are a national mentoring organisation for healthcare students and professionals. We work with medics, dentists, vets, psychologists, biomedical scientists and nurses. We currently have roughly 8000 members, and work alongside, universities, Royal Colleges, trade unions and similar organisations to deliver effecting mentoring programmes for our members, which has already shown to greatly improve their wellbeing, professional development and career satisfaction. We are a social enterprise, so we are entirely self-funded and we do this by running national careers events for aspiring school students. To the end, we work with over 800 schools in the UK and teach roughly 6000 students each year. We reinvest proceeds back into our mentoring initiatives to support our healthcare colleagues. This year we have invested £60,000 in the form of 90 scholarships for students at university studying medicine, dentistry, vet med and psychology. The Awards Evening showcases and encourages talented and aspiring individuals who are the next generation of healthcare leaders.
