FoRRM (Formal Radiography Research Mentoring) is a mentoring scheme created with the overarching aim to increase research capacity and quality in radiography, as well as to offer a formal way to support future research leaders.
Funded by the College of Radiographers, the scheme was first launched in 2015. For those with a clear commitment to a career in research, one-to-one mentoring with an experienced research radiographers is provided.
The pilot version of FoRRM1 originally had 12 mentors and mentees and ran for eight months, while FoRRM2 ran for 12 months with a cohort of 17. The results have been overwhelmingly positive from every cohort. To read the outcomes of FoRRM1, see here and to hear from one of our previous mentees see here.
