Who can become an NEXT-Mentee?

  • You must be an ESICM member, and ≤ 35 years of age, or > 35 years, only if attending an intensive care training programme (dual/joint or standalone), or within 5 years after intensive care specialisation, with a research agenda in ICM.

Who are the NEXT-Mentors?

Why should you become an NEXT-Mentee?

What are the “rules”?

The primary aim of the programme is to support NEXT-Mentees engaged in research. However, you and your mentor will be allowed to define the specific contents and perimeters of your mentorship. There are only few general requirements for your mentorship:

  • You must come from different countries.
  • You must define a tangible goal or purpose of the mentorship, e.g. help with a specific research project, publication, or grant application, learning certain techniques, planning and conducting joint projects, support mobility, or general counselling concerning training and career development.*
  • You will define the minimum/maximum length of the programme, which may end after the goal is reached, but must not be shorter than one year in any case.
  • You will choose the frequency of your meetings (with a minimum of 4 per year).
  • You will define the method of your meetings: online or in person.

*If the mentorship is about a research project at your institution, which requires approval of the local ethical committee, your local supervisor will have to formally accept your participation in the programme.
