As a mentor you will help to guide and strengthen the next generation of neurologists by supporting, on an individual basis, the development of a mentee’s clinical and scientific skills.
By entering this relationship, you will engage in mutual learning and strengthen your own leadership skills by spending a few hours every month mentoring an individual seeking your advice.
Together with your mentee, you will work out a roadmap and define aims that can be achieved within the timeframe of the programme.
There is no financial support for this programme. It does not provide any financial aid to mentors or mentees.
However, EAN supports mentors in their task of mentoring throughout the duration of the programme and rewards participation and successful completion with the following benefits:
- Free access to the annual EAN congress and to events specific to the mentorship programme.
- Free registration for the EAN annual Spring School or Autumn School to meet and interact with each other (mutual participation of mentor and mentee required)
- Upon completion of the programme, certification as an ‘EAN mentor’ for the acknowledged period. In future, long-term/regular mentors might receive acknowledgement.
- Public acknowledgement (EANpages)
In addition to those EAN benefits, participation in the programme offers mentors the chance to strengthen their own mentorship skills, which is certainly recognised by academic institutions all over the world.
