The following types of interactions between mentors and mentees are encouraged:
• mentors and mentees have a lunch or dinner together to discuss the mentees’ educational plan and/or career aims;
• mentors share their career experience with their mentees;
• mentors attend the (poster or lecture) presentation of the mentee and provide constructive feedback;
• mentors introduce mentees to their colleagues to help the mentee establish a professional network.
Typically, the mentor initiates these activities. However, mentees are also encouraged to prepare for their participation, with specific questions and goals they would like to achieve at the conference. In the interest of privacy, it is suggested that mentors and mentees keep their discussions confidential.
If you wish to participate in the Mentorship Program at ECMTB 2018, please fill in the REGISTRATION FORM no later than May 10th, 2018.
Ahead of the meeting, both mentor and mentee will be informed on the pairing made to match their interests.
If you have any doubts about the Mentorship Program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
