The ESOT Mentorship Programme

The ESOT Mentorship Programme aims to provide transplant professionals with the opportunity for close interaction and expert guidance at a key stage of their career. Mentoring is a powerful personal development tool to develop one’s career, change direction if desired or necessary, and support work-life balance. 

The programme welcomes mentors and mentees from all disciplines and participants can apply to work with expert mentors selected on the basis of their specialty and areas of interest. 

ESOT is strongly committed to principles of equity, diversity and inclusion and strives to promote such values through its education programme. Members of traditionally underrepresented and marginalized groups are particularly encouraged to apply both as mentors and as mentees.

The applications for the 2024 edition will open in September 2023. Visit the programme page of the current edition for more information.

The programme is conducted by the ESOT Education Committee in collaboration with the Young Professionals in Transplantation (YPT) Committee with the aim of empowering emerging transplant professionals and nurturing future leaders in transplantation.


Academia workshops

The Academia course provides participants with intensive training on some of the key skills necessary to succeed in research, publishing, and professional interactions. This course is recommended to all transplant professionals who wish to learn how to conduct rigorous research, get published, effectively present their work, and become culturally competent professionals. Topics include: how to conduct a systematic review; statistics; how to prepare and deliver an effective and engaging presentation; communication and unconscious bias. The course combines lectures, workshops, group work, and short presentations by participants. 

Support for participation in ESOT courses is available through the Grants programme.
