We’re pleased to announce that HESG will be running a pilot for a mentoring programme for early and mid-career HESG members. Applications are now open for 6 mentors and 6 mentees to take part in the pilot. The deadline for applications is 30th March 2018.
The scheme will be coordinated by Professor Rhiannon Tudor Edwards from the Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation (CHEME) at Bangor University. Applications can be submitted via the HESG website.HESG Mentoring Slides
The mentoring process supports and encourages people to manage their own learning, in order to maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be. The aim of the programme is to help foster a culture of mentorship at health economics research centres across the UK through this pilot voluntary inter-institutional scheme. This scheme is modelled on the Women in Universities Mentoring Scheme (WUMS).
In the first instance we are looking for 6 senior academics (Senior lecturer; Reader; Professor) and 6 early-mid career researchers (e.g. candidates who have almost or recently completed their PhD, or research officers, lecturers etc.). The scheme will match mentors and mentees based on shared interests in health economics methodology and/or an applied area of research. The scheme will particularly support mentees in the smaller or newer research centres, possibly through mentorship by mentors based in the larger or more established centres.
It is proposed that the mentoring arrangement will last for 12 months, with 4 face-to-face or Skype meeting dates (to be arranged by the mentee over that time period).
