More about the BONUS Oncology Mentorship Scheme:
The academic year 2021/22 marked the first cycle of the scheme for which BONUS recruited over 120 mentees from across the UK. The initiative allows an individualised pairing of medical students and junior doctors with specialists in medical, clinical, surgical and interventional oncology.
Mentoring takes place over six months and the participants are encouraged to meet at least three times. The mentoring sessions are individually agreed by the mentor and the mentee and consist of:
- Insights into a career in oncology
- Shadowing the mentor in a clinical setting
- Discussion of case studies and research papers
- General careers advice
- Engagement in research projects
- Networking opportunities
- Teaching on oncology topics
