Introductory Service for Mentors and Mentees

With over 3,500 Members in more than 60 countries, The Physiological Society offers access to a significant network of physiologists that can help you progress in your career, develop new skills or support the next generation. Whatever your needs, The Society has established an introductory service for our Members who wish to be mentored (mentees) by other Members who would like to share their experience (mentors).

The Society is currently aiming to recruit more mentors to support those who have already signed for mentoring. Another call for mentees will open later this year in May.

By signing up as a mentor, you will:

  • develop skills for your portfolio e.g. HEA/Phys Soc Fellowship
  • have a chance to give something back to the community by supporting the next generation of physiologists
  • build a broader network of contacts in the discipline
  • have an opportunity to reflect on your own life experiences
  • …to name but a few of the benefits!

To learn more about how becoming a mentor might help you, you can read about the experience of a past mentor here.

The Society will make efforts to match you with a mentee based on common circumstances, interests, skills, experiences and time available wherever possible. Matching will only take place between individuals that sign up for the scheme.

Sign up here to become a mentor by Sunday 12 May 2019

Before registering, please read The Society’s Fair Processing Notice. If you have any questions, please email 


On 25 April 2017, Alexis Hutson (consultant for coaching doctors) delivered a bespoke seminar for The Society on developmental mentoring.
