ESAIC runs a Mentorship Programme to promote the professional development of young researchers through one-to-one mentoring by experienced investigators. It enables the development of a personal relationship and provides individual support for the mentee in their chosen field of research.
The aims of the Programme are:
- To preserve and transfer accumulated professional knowledge within the anaesthesia and intensive care community
- To support individual academic anaesthetists in achieving their potential as researchers.
- To contribute to the ESAIC mission to connect anaesthesiologists in the field of research in Anaesthesia, Intensive Care, Perioperative Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Pain with senior experts (mentors) as a platform for professional exchange and mutual learning.
Experienced Investigators covering a wide range of anaesthesiology and intensive care topics have been selected to be mentors and will be matched with mentees by their field of interest. Mentors and mentees will be encouraged to meet regularly and agree on an aim for the mentorship as well as the logistics (how often, where and when to meet). The mentorship will last 2 years, and the mentor and mentee will be asked to provide feedback to the ESAIC.
We are delighted to introduce Prof. Romero as the new Mentorship Programme Leader, who has worked closely with Prof. Buhre over the last few months and will be a fantastic asset to the Programme!
CS Romero is an Anaesthesia and Critical Care consultant at the General University Hospital of Valencia, Spain. She is interested in collaborative research merging new technologies and modern statistical methods with medicine, and has obtained a Master’s Degree in Biostatistics. In her area, she teaches research methodology at the University and is involved in the local innovation hub promoting knowledge transfer from the clinical setting to industry, supporting innovation, digitalisation and collaboration between health tech partners.
Internationally, she is involved in the Evidence-Based Research (EVBRES) Network and obtained an Evidence Foundation and US-GRADE Scholarship. At ESAIC, CS Romero is currently a member of the Guidelines Committee, and she is also a member of the methodology group.
We look forward to supporting the Mentorship Programme this year and providing Virtual Classrooms and individual calls, amongst other initiatives. If you need help individually or as a pair, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please also ensure you return the Feedback forms, as the forms are necessary to complete the Programme. Moreover, this enables us to ensure that your pairing is going well.
