European Neuromuscular Centre Mid-Career Mentoring Programme Now Open
The European Neuromuscular Centre (ENMC) Mid-Career Mentoring Programme is now open for the third round of mentee candidates!
About the Programme
The programme has been developed for people who wish to seek mentoring in order to become independent researchers and/or potential future leaders in the NMD field. These individuals will be at the stage in their careers where they are developing their own research plans and are establishing their research teams and collaborative networks worldwide.
Feedback from first-year mentees
First-year mentees completed a survey on their mentoring programme experience, with results showing that the programme was extremely beneficial: the mentees were satisfied, well-matched with their mentors, and saw improvement in skills they wanted to improve (such as networking, self-confidence, delegation of work, communicating and presenting themself and securing a good work-life balance). NMD4C members who have participated in the programme as mentors in the past include Dr. James Dowling, Dr. Cynthia Gagnon, and Dr. Hanns Lochmüller.
