Early Career: ESE Young Endocrinologists and Scientists (EYES)

ESE has a focus on supporting early career endocrinologists and works closely with the ESE Young Endocrinologists and Scientists (EYES) network to ensure that their needs are being met. ESE aims to provide top quality continuous endocrine related education and training provision for all career stages in both clinical practice and basic research, and works to create a dynamic community which will inspire the next generation of endocrinologists.

In order to strengthen communication with this key audience, early career endocrinologists are represented with an ex-officio role on the Executive Committee.

The EYES Committee

The EYES Committee communicates the opinions, suggestions and expectations of early career endocrinologists to ESE, reports on activities, and organises a symposium session at the annual ECE.

Opportunities for early career endocrinologists


ESE provides training courses, to equip young endocrinologists for a career in the field. These include annual meetings such as the Summer School and our Postgraduate courses.

Awards & Grants

We encourage young endocrine scientists to apply for our various grants and awards. The ESE Young Investigator Awards and Poster Awards recognise the best abstracts submitted to the ECE and meeting and travel grants are also available for attending ESE courses and events. 

EYES Clinical and Research Observership Programmes (C.O.P. and R.O.P.)

ESE also offers a number of Observership Programme opportunities for ESE Early Career Investigators (ECI) from Europe to grow and learn during a short, one-month stay in various European endocrine centres of special interest. Find out more about the programmes here. 


A wide range of resources are available from ESE for early career endocrinologists. These include a Recommended Curriculum of Specialisation in Clinical Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, a range of clinical guidelines, as well as videos on common diseases and the latest research from the European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE).
