Virtual Congress 2020 is coming up quickly, and as usual we’ve got a great selection of content for you to enjoy. Historically, we have worked with the RCVS to provide a free session – and 2020 will be no different, we’ve got both John Chitty and Andrew Hill lined up to bring you a fantastic hour of CPD!

This year, we’ve got two fascinating webinars, and here’s what you can look forward to:

BSAVA Mentoring Scheme

In 2018, the BSAVA launched a pilot independent professional mentorship scheme. This was designed as a small scale project in two cohorts of 12 mentor-mentee pairs. Training of both mentors and mentees was given, and each pair completed a formal contract prior to commencement. Through the year-long trial regular reviews were undertaken. The trial has been a success with all initial objectives met. As a result, a second pilot will be run in 2019-20.

John Chitty will give an outline of the scheme and where it differs from other schemes, and will also provide some of the feedback from both mentors and mentees illustrating the benefits of a mentorship scheme to both parties.


Myths of perfectionism and its relationship with mental health

Andrew Hill talks us through some of the major myths regarding perfectionism, these will be presented and it will be explained how these myths lay in stark contrast to the findings of scientific research. In doing so, perfectionism will be revealed to be a personality trait relevant (to some degree) to everyone.

You can register for these webinars now for free, so make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to get some fantastic CPD.
