FuHeL – Future Healthcare Leaders in Respiratory Medicine – MENTORING PROGRAMME


Since the 3rd International Workshop on Lung Health, in 2017 the congress has offered the opportunity to 10 – 12 early career clinicians and researchers to attend, during the event, a side “Mentoring Programme” dedicated specifically to help younger professionals to boosts their career.

The Mentoring Programme has been delivered by successful and still young researchers and clinicians accompanying personally the participants in discovering what are the tricks to know and to learn to succeed in an international environment.

Every year the programme is slightly different adapting also to the background of the participants.

The program will cover topics such as how to identify and seize opportunities, how to avoid or overcome obstacles, how to successfully manage relationships, how to move forward with the sometimes very limited resources you have to start, how to deal with the challenges of work-life balance in different national and organizational environments, how to stand out in the competitive local and foreign landscapes, etc.

If you are an early career professional in Respiratory Medicine or related specialties, we invite you to submit your application for acceptance into the FuHeL program before October 24, 2022 by registering on the site and forwarding your resume.

The participants of the FuHeL Programme will be chosen among the ones submitting their candidacy based on the following criteria:

  • Age and curriculum – ideal target interns, PhD Students, Post Docs
  • Time of submission of the candidacy – first time first served basis
  • Please note that if your candidacy is accepted to be confirmed you need to pay your registration fee.
