As a mentor you will guide and strengthen the next generation of neurologists, by making sure that research and clinical neurology will develop.
By entering this relationship, you engage in mutual learning and strengthen your own leadership skills by spending a few hours every month mentoring an individual seeking for your advice.
Together with your mentee, you will work out a roadmap and define programme stages that can be achieved during the duration of the programme.
The EAN mentorship programme has no financial obligations. It is not providing any financial aid to neither mentors nor mentees.
However, the 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 events specific to the mentorship programme.
- Free access to the EAN annual Spring or Autumn School to meet and interact with each other (mutual participation of mentor and mentee required)
- Upon completion of the programme, certification as ‘EAN mentor’ for the acknowledged period. In future, long-term/regular mentors might possibility receive an extra certification/acknowledgement after a certain duration of participation in the programme.
- Public acknowledgement (EANpages)
In addition to those EAN benefits, participation in the programme offers mentors to strengthen their own mentorship skills, which is certainly recognised by academic institutions all over the world.
