Future Leader Mentorship Programme for Clinical Diabetologist 2018

The European Foundation for the Study of Diabetes (EFSD) was created by the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) to provide funding initiatives in all areas of diabetes research. The aims of EFSD are to encourage and support research in the field of diabetes, to rapidly diffuse acquired knowledge and to facilitate its application.


There is a global challenge to recruit and train the next generation of clinical investigators, not least in endocrinology/diabetes. The major goal of this Mentorship Programme will be to identify and promote the advancement of the next generation of leading clinical diabetologists in Europe. Through its various activities the Programme will help award recipients (“Mentees”) develop into leaders by refining their skills in the three cardinal areas of clinical diabetes, research and communication, thereby keeping them in the field of diabetes and facilitating their appointment to senior academic positions at major European institutions.


EFSD Future Leader Awards are intended for clinical academic diabetologists, who are clinically qualified in medicine and who would usually be expected to have between 3 and 10 years of experience in their field at a relatively senior level but normally without a tenured academic Faculty position. These individuals must have the goal of becoming a national leader in clinical diabetes or its complications in their country of residence. They must further demonstrate a clear interest in education and clinical research. This call will be open to clinical diabetologists meeting all the above requirements who are members of the EASD and are resident and working in any European country or Associated State.


The deadline for receipt of mentorship applications is 28th April 2018.
