Obtaining your PhD can be a difficult task that involves many different people and requires a lot of communication and/or confrontation.. In a peer coaching group (“intervisie groep”) you can discuss your (non-technical) problems or dilemmas in a structured way with peers. This method is often used to reflect on current practices; expand, refine, and train new skills; share ideas and to solve problems in the workspace. You can now register for the RIMLS pilot with PhD peer coaching groups that will start in September 2020.
A peer coaching group consists of up to eight RIMLS PhD candidates . Each group will receive a training in the methodology (2 hours) once a year. Thereafter, the PhD candidates will gather for about four 2-hour sessions per year, led by one of the participants. The things discussed in the groups will be strictly confidential, creating a safe environment to share the existing challenges. Within Radboudumc, existing peer coaching groups are used to optimize the learning process and contribute to reduce the observed stress.
If you wish to participate in this pilot, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Extended deadline 15 August 2020. It is also possible to register as an existing group.
