Young ESPGHAN Mentorship Programme

General Information

The ESPGHAN Mentorship Programme began in 2017 with the aim to create a forum for Young ESPGHAN members to meet and receive pastoral support from more senior ESPGHAN members. This year we are continuing with this initiative in a virtual programme so that we can reach out to as many of you as possible!

What can you expect?

  • We will hold a half day, online workshop on 17th of April 2024 (10.00-13.00 CEST). In this workshop you will learn and practice good (as well as bad) mentoring styles. You will be encouraged to practice what you have learnt in your professional life.
  • We will arrange a face-to-face meeting with your mentor at the ESPGHAN Annual Meeting in Milan, Italy on Wednesday, 15th of May 2024 at 12.00 CEST. 
  • We will follow up and prompt you to arrange three, virtual meetings with your mentor after Milan. We will help you identify topics that you may wish to explore with your mentor.
  • Please note that the attendance of the online workshop and the ESPGHAN Annual Meeting is mandatory to enter the programme.
