PSI Mentoring 2024
Date: Ongoing 6 month cycle beginning late April/early May 2024
Who is this event intended for? Members of PSI who are currently working in the industry.
What is the benefit of attending? Participants will have the opportunity to; network with colleagues in the industry, improve leadership/mentoring skills, learn from senior colleagues in the industry, and support with career aspirations and goals.
Registration for this year's cohort is now closed.
*Please note: this scheme is open only to Members of PSI who are currently working in the industry.
This year we're inviting participants to be both a Mentee and Mentor if they so wish - if this would be of interest, please select the relevant option in the registration form, and complete all sections if you wish to register as both.
Are you a member of PSI looking to further your career or help develop others - why not sign up to the PSI Mentoring scheme? You can expand your network, improve your leadership skills and learn from more senior colleagues in the industry. Mentors and mentees will be matched based on experience, personal goals and the sector they work in (unless otherwise requested) so you can be assured that we will aim to tailor the experience to your needs.
For further resources, be sure to keep checking our Careers webpage. University students interested in learning more about the industry should consider the MEDMathS webinar and the annual Medical Statistics Careers Event. There is also a quarterly Career Young Virtual Meet where you can meet with new starters in the industry.
The PSI Mentoring Scheme is aimed at:
a) Members looking to further their careers by expanding their network and learning from more senior colleagues in the industry by having a mentor.
b) Members who are looking to improve their leadership skills and help guide junior colleagues in the industry by mentoring others.
- Mentors and mentees will be matched based on experience, personal goals and the sector they work in (unless otherwise requested). Welcome sessions will be held at the beginning of the Scheme to kick things off and provide guidance about the content of the sessions and how to make the most out of each meeting to both mentors and mentees.
- This will be followed by an initial meeting between each mentor/mentee pairing so that all mentors and mentees will have an opportunity to meet each other and gauge the chemistry between matches.
- We suggest that each pair of mentors and mentees meet a minimum of once a month but it will be up to them to create their own meeting schedule. Each pair will be paired for at least 6 months after which they are free to continue to meet outside of the programme.
Additional guidance about the content of the sessions and how to make the most out of each meeting will be provided at a later date.
