New era for EYES as it becomes ESE Young Endocrinologists & Scientists
The European Young Endocrine Scientists are becoming the ESE Young Endocrinologists and Scientists, to strengthen the relationship and provide even more benefits and opportunities to members. Read on as EYES Co-chairs, Ayse Zengin and Ljiljana Marina, explain more about the changes.
"Since its inception in 2012, EYES has been fueled by the enthusiasm and motivation of early career investigators (ECIs) within endocrinology, striving to give opportunities for all ECIs within the field. This has been the driving force of bringing together like-minded individuals, who are passionate about endocrinology and giving a voice for ECIs within this sphere. We have accomplished so much since the birth of EYES including a stand-alone, annual EYES meeting, which has evolved into a better and better meeting each year, we have ECI representation across all ESE committees, a distinct EYES symposium at ECE and an EYES newsletter to highlight the accomplishments of ECIs, and to engage with the broader EYES community.
As the years have progressed, the EYES community has grown enormously, now with over 500 ECIs! As such, we are now an established community and will be formally recognised as the ESE Young Endocrinologists and Scientists – the official ECI branch of the ESE. In moving forward and evolving through ESE, EYES aims to provide more opportunities for ECIs including mentoring schemes, Clinical Observership Program (COP) and training opportunities for the European Endocrinology Exam, among many other exciting plans that we have in the pipeline.
This new era of EYES will be structured to deliver even more opportunities for the EYES community and to build on what has been established in years gone by. We are extremely excited and looking forward to the future."
