In March 2019, the sixth year of the DZHK Mentoring Programme started with 11 mentees. The programme is aimed at young doctors, scientists and science managers. The aim of the program is to prepare young cardiovascular researchers for management tasks. The program takes place annually in German and English.
As part of mentoring, the mentees learn over the course of a year to better assess their own personality and social, communicative and professional skills. In workshops individually tailored to their needs, they can acquire soft skills and prepare for challenging situations in professional management positions in coaching sessions. The mentees are accompanied by a mentor whom they select themselves.
