The ILAE Mentor-Mentee programme will involve the allocation of a mentor, an experienced individual in the research/clinical area in which trainee demonstrates an interest, to a trainee.
Applications for the mentor-mentee programme are only available through the congress abstract submission system and applicants must submit an abstract to the congress in order to be eligible to apply for the programme.
If selected, the trainee will be allocated a mentor, invited to an evening event on Saturday 28th August 2021, and also a meeting later in the congress. Trainees will have the opportunity to meet with their mentors, as well as to listen to further individuals established in their careers in different regions of the world. The mentors will arrange to attend the trainees’ presentation/poster and also to further consultation.
Participants in the ILAE Mentor-Mentee Programme do not receive any support to attend the congress.
*Please note that the applicant must submit an abstract to the congress in order to be eligible to apply for the programme.
