Testimonial
"Karen, Elena, and the rest of the folks at Elemed have put together an incredible mentoring program. It has been so fun to meet the other mentees and engage with them in roundtables and workshops! There are mentees from all over the world and hearing their experiences has made me feel like a part of a community, especially with the increased isolation measures from COVID. The speakers have been excellent and even though the program is only halfway through I have already taken away so many tips and tricks for networking, managing up, and making better connections with people. The mentor I am paired with is great! She has been through a lot of what I am going through now and is able to commiserate and give valuable advice. Her perspective has helped me to see some of the challenges I faced from a different viewpoint and alter my strategy. I cannot say enough positive things about this program, I am so happy I found it! I 100% recommend the Elemed Mentoring Academy to anyone looking to find a role model and make more connections in their career.”

"It is very organized and an opportunity for mentees to connect with a mentor as well as others within the industry. Finding mentors in the Regulatory space is not always easy - not many programs exist. So, there certainly is value. "

Testimonial

"The Elemed Mentoring Academy combines one-to-one mentoring with expert trainings and interesting discussions with fellow regulatory, quality and clinical colleagues. Together with the recommended reading this makes up good food for thought and contributes to gaining new perspectives and further improving work. This comprehensive and structured program also provides excellent tools to define goals, reflect and track progress. There is much to be gained from the program, independent of career stage."

- Mentee in Elemed's Mentoring Academy
"I have already learnt a lot of new things. My mentor give me great insight into her life and experience and I can benefit from it. It is nice to network with the other mentees and see how they are dealing with certain situations and how their mentee-mentor relationship is. I really appreciate how helpful everyone is. That impressed me a lot."

Elemed's Mentoring Academy color scheme

Elemed’s Mentoring Academy doesn’t have to be a one-off experience. After the end of the program, our mentees will have the opportunity to continue being part of the Elemed Mentoring Academy network for as long as they like. We, therefore, have established a color scheme which certifies your level of engagement within the program.

FAQ

What is the price?
We are offering different pricing options. Each of them consists of a 250€ excluding VAT registration fee + the program fee – depending on the option you choose (Bronze, Silver, Gold). If you would like to get your employer on board, speak to them and show them the Employee ROI of participating in this program.

What are the payment terms?
The registration fee of 250€ excluding VAT is due upon registration. The program fee becomes due upon start of the program on the 1st of April. For our silver and gold programs we do offer the option to spread the costs.

When does the program start?
All applications need to be made by the 15th of March. We will communicate matches in March and the program will run from 1st April until 30th September.

How much time do I need to invest?
This is a 7 months program. For silver and gold members we recommend meeting with your mentor twice a month for approximately 45 minutes per session (it is up to the mentee & mentor to set the rhythm and tempo of the meetings). For bronze members we recommend to meet with the group once a month for approximately 90 minutes. Independent on the package you will gain access to more than 7 hrs of training which you can review live or in your own time. As we are big believers in continuous learning we are offering the possibility to extend the Elemed Mentoring Academy experience after the 7 months have come to an end.

How do I ensure confidentiality ?
All mentors and mentees will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement. The subject matter of discussions should not cover company secrets, and were commend not discussing highly sensitive information.

What about conflict of interest?
We will also avoid pairing direct competitors – please let us know in the application form if this is something we should know.

Can I be hired by my mentor?
No. The goal of this initiative is professional development, not recruitment. All mentors will be required to sign a non-solicitation agreement.

How long should I allocate for completing my application survey?
It will take you approximately 15 minutes to fill out the application survey.

Is this group or individual mentoring?
This depends on the option that you decide to go forward with. In our bronze program you will get access to group mentoring sessions. If you decide to choose the silver or gold program mentors and mentees will meet on an individual basis, to ensure both parties get the most out of the relationship. However a mentor can have more than one mentee. Training modules offered by Elemed’s Mentoring Academy are always group based and virtual.

How do you choose who gets paired with who?
The application process gathers information on your background, skills, availability and interests, to ensure that we are making the best possible match.

Can I be a mentor and a mentee at the same time?
Yes. You can sign up as a mentor to share your experience with someone as well as being a mentee to develop skills in the communicated sections.
