ESPE Clinical Fellowship Spring Initiative 2021
The year 2021 marks the 30th Anniversary of the ESPE Clinical Fellowship programme that was started with one fellow back in 1991 by Prof. S.L.S. Drop, and until now has included over 250 trainees from over 30 countries and 4 continents. In April 2021, we delivered 3.5 hours of educational online content, called the ESPE Clinical Fellowship Spring Initiative, to provide an online space to gather former and current ESPE clinical fellows, their hosts and tutors as well as 2020 applicants who have not yet been through the selection process. The content is now available online for all to watch! It is a mixture of state-of-the-art presentations, tutors’ patient presentations, fellows’ presentations (cases and research) and live Q&A sessions. The programme for the Initiative can be found here. The Clinical Fellowship Committee is indebted to Charlotte Homa, Alex Penhallurick, Ollie Taylor and Chris McCusker (Bioscientifica) for their invaluable input in the organisation and carrying out the Spring Initiative!
- Applicants for the Fellowship should be fully trained in Paediatrics and/or have started training in Paediatric Endocrinology.
- All applicants should have the intention to pursue a career in Paediatric Endocrinology.
- Applicants should be supported by a Promoter coming from their current Department (Home Centre) and from the Head of the Department.
- ESPE is not currently accepting grant applications from Russia or Belarus.
Commitment for a position in Paediatric Endocrinology following the completion of the Fellowship with, at least, preservation of the Candidate’s working post/position and, preferably, support for the possibility of promotion subsequently locally or in another national centre on successful completion of the Fellowship.
If an applicant has a specific host centre request, then a support letter or email from the host centre could be attached (optional). Host centres cannot be in Russia or Belarus.
The ESPE Clinical Fellowship Committee is a sub-committee of the ESPE Education and Training Committee which is appointed by the Council. The committee consists of a Chair, a Secretary and two members. The Committee is responsible for selecting the successful candidates from amongst the applicants, determining the length of the fellowship, selecting an appropriate host-centre and liaising with Fellows and Hosts during and immediately after the fellowship.
A representative of Merck is present at the Committee meetings and participates in the discussions including selection of the Fellows. However, they play no part in the final decision of the Committee regarding individual candidates and if voting is required, this is restricted to the ESPE Clinical Fellowship Committee members only.
