Professor Anthony Penington
Mentoring Program in the Department of Surgery
Led by Professor Anthony Penington the Department of Surgery runs a focussed mentoring program which identifies and fosters young surgeons who are considering a career in academic surgery. Each mentoring cycle lasts for one year and matches a younger surgeon with a suitable mentor. Mentoring is directed towards developing a career path in academic surgery and solving the many problems which particularly affect surgeons in balancing busy clinical practice with research and teaching. The program is only open to surgeons in the department who are close to completion of training or in the first few years of practice.
