Mentorship Task Force

The EAN mentorship task force is an independent working group composed to develop and work on this programme. They report directly to the Education committee and the EAN Board.

The Task force is composed of 4 senior members of the EAN (Education and Teaching Course Committee) and 3 EAN-RRFS members.

Among their responsibilities are:

  • Setting up a matching programme for mentors and mentees.
  • Defining and creating all necessary documentation, forms, operating procedures and assessment of the programme
  • Find suitable matches among all applications and oversee and support the pairs during their 1-year engagement.


Definition of the Mentorship Programme:

The EAN mentorship programme enables early-career neurologists to connect with Europe’s best clinicians, educators, and scientists in the field and vice versa. It promotes neurologists in training or at the start of their clinical/academic career, i.e. mentees, to determine or strengthen their focus and develop their full potential.  Simultaneously, it allows mentors to reflect and strengthen their mentoring skills aside from their contribution to bring neurology forward.
