Young Nephrologist Committee Mentoring Program

Young Nephrologist Committee Mentoring Program

The ISN-YNC Mentoring Program was established in 2010 in order to foster international relationships between nephrologists and nephrologists-in-training or more junior nephrologists/nephrology researchers. The participants communicate primarily by email or teleconferences usually once or twice per month to discuss clinical cases and/or research projects of mutual interest. We are actively expanding this program to include more mentors from the ISN Young Nephrologists’ Committee as well as more senior members of the ISN leadership.

The program has a special interest in promoting exchange visits between the mentees and the mentors so that all can learn from each other. Therefore, participants of this program will be given additional consideration when applying for ISN Global Outreach (GO) or ISN Research Fellowship travel awards.
