GLODERM Programme Expansion Announcement

We are pleased to share with you some exciting developments in GLODERM’s activity programme. Our much-anticipated Mentorship Programme will start in 2022 alongside the expansion of our Trainee Educational Webinar Series. We are also delighted to announce that CeraVe will be a founding and leading supporter of these GLODERM activities providing a significant grant. GLODERM brings together a unique community of dermatology professionals with a focus on Global Health Dermatology. Connecting these individuals, at all career stages, who are passionate about the advancement of skin health in resource-limited communities, locally and globally is central to GLODERM’s mission.

 

Mentorship Programme

The Mentorship Programme is a cornerstone of GLODERM’s sustainable and integrated approach to improving dermatologic clinical care, education, research, policy, and advocacy. The programme brings together Mentor-Mentee Pairs from all over the world to share knowledge and grow the skills
needed for Mentees to become ‘change-makers’.


Over the 12-month programme the Mentees will have monthly online meetings with their Mentor and follow a webinar programme, with other cohort members, to develop and enhance their leadership and global health dermatology skills. This programme does not focus on clinical skills instead it aims to create and enhance skills in the areas of programme management, leadership, fundraising, and publication. Developing the global health dermatology leaders of tomorrow, today. There will also be a one-month placement where the Mentee will join their Mentor for an intensive in-person skills development phase. The programme will ensure a series of networking opportunities, including attendance of an international dermatology conference where possible. We hope to grow a community of future ‘change-makers’ and develop a network of GLODERM Mentees who can offer encouragement and support to each other as they build programmes, start initiatives, train healthcare workers, and improve access to skin health services globally.

Webinar Series

The GLODERM Educational Webinar Series provides dermatology content across a broad range of topics. The webinars are aimed at trainees from around the world, they are free to access and form a great resource library for any healthcare professional with an interest in dermatology. These monthly webinars are jointly hosted by an internationally renowned dermatologist as well as a GLODERM Trainee, bringing together the two perspectives for a unique learning opportunity. Sign up to the Trainee Mailing List to be the first to hear about webinar registration and keep up to date with the future GLODERM Trainee developments.
