The BAAPS Mentorship scheme has been created to provide an ongoing long-term training and supportive relationship between young plastic surgeons towards the end of their training and into their early consultant careers and experienced senior colleagues. The hope is to create a mutually beneficial long term relationship.
Benefits to the Host Centre and Mentors include having a highly qualified assistant, a colleague to participate in aesthetic practice audit and research, improvements in operating room efficiency, enhancing surgical skills and CPD through teaching and discussion and Mentee involvement in the patient journey, to name but a few. Furthermore, BAAPS will support and help to promote the contribution of Mentors and Host Centres using its social media channels and in other ways.
For the Mentee, they will benefit from tailored teaching and observation in the operating theatre, in clinic and in the running of a private practice. They will also participate in audit and research, with a view to presentations and publications of their work. It is hoped/envisaged that the relationship that will have started at the beginning of the Mentorship will continue into their early consultant career with holistic support for their practice - clinical, managerial and pastoral.
