Fit for Leadership: Mentoring at the DZHK

5th Year of DZHK Mentoring

The fifth year of the DZHK Mentoring Programme started in March 2018 with 14 mentees. The programme is targeted at young doctors, scientists and science managers. The goal of the DZHK mentoring programme is to prepare young scientists in the field of cardiovascular research for leadership tasks. For the first time the mentoring programme is held completely in English.

Within the mentoring programme, over the course of one year, mentees gain a better appreciation of their own personality, their social and communication skills and professional abilities. In workshops that cater to their individual needs they can acquire soft skills, while coaching sessions prepare them for challenging situations in future leadership roles. The mentees are guided by mentors which they can choose for themselves.

The deadline for applying for the sixth year of DZHK Mentoring ends at December 1st 2018.
