Mentorship Programme

Mentorship Programme

Are you interested in developing the next generation of neuro-oncology specialists/researchers? Could you use your experiences to guide others?

EANO is looking for established clinicians and researchers to support their Mentorship Programme. We are looking for individuals across the spectrum of neuro-oncology - from basic scientists with various interests to clinicians of all allied health professional (AHP) or medical disciplines. Registered volunteer mentors may be selected by a mentee to work together for a year on a project proposed by the mentee, determined at the outset and to be developed by the pair.

A pool of volunteer mentors will be created, and mentees will be able to apply, proposing an area of need and proposing up to three of mentors from the pool. The preferences will not be binding to EANO but there will be an effort to satisfy them.

As a mentor you will bring your skills and experiences to advise your mentee on the project that you will jointly develop. This may be setting up a laboratory or clinical project, writing a grant application or a manuscript, or another project you may jointly define.

You will meet your mentee virtually, monthly for an hour or as you deem appropriate according to the project being developed, the idea being that you will complete this project in the span of one year. Two interim reports should be produced and the final product should be presented to EANO by the mentee.

Projects are meant to be the vehicle through which mentees acquire organizational skills for project management as well as pure neuro-oncology-related knowledge.

Mentees will be members of EANO. If suitable, the projects will be eligible for selection to be presented at the EANO annual meeting.
