Thriving in Medicine (TiME) course

Course/Event Description

There will be many positive times during your career in medicine, but now more than ever, we recognise that everyone, at some point will be challenged and stressed by their experiences.

There is now much evidence that working to improve our personal resilience can benefit us. We can all do better for our patients when we are taking care of ourselves.

“It's easy to be a good doctor when everything is going well. It's much more challenging to be a good doctor when nothing is going well”.

We invite you all to join the Thriving in Medicine (TiME) course which is run by the Scotland Deanery and mapped to the Foundation Curriculum.

TiME is facilitated by experienced doctors. The course comprises a pair of workshops designed to give FY1s an insight into the emotional demands of working within medicine and provide a personal toolkit to enable you to respond positively to those challenges. It provides an opportunity for peer sharing and learning, senior support and an avenue to voice practical workplace concerns.

With current restrictions on face-to-face teaching we will be piloting this course digitally across Scotland using MS Teams.

Module 1 will run on 3 dates: 10th, 18th and 25th of March 2021 from 12.30-13.45. To book a space on one of these dates please contact the Foundation School administrative officer Gillian Carter (Gillian.Carter@nhs.scot).

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on the course next month
