About the Leadership Mentoring

Find the next Leadership Mentoring course


The first ESDR Leadership Mentoring program was launched in November 2019. Developed in association with, and directed by, Prof Naomi Chambers of the Manchester Business School (MBS), UK, the first 2-day course included 16 applicants previously selected from alumni of the ESDR Academy for Future Leaders in Dermatology. Observers from the ESDR Board and sister societies were present.

Following the success of the event the ESDR decided to organize a follow-up course directed by Prof. Naomi Chambers (MBS). The follow-up course involved all the participants from the previous program for a one-day follow-up course.
