The ICNA Future Leaders Programme was launched at the Amsterdam ICNC in May 2016. The programme constituted a way forward to provide support for child neurology trainees and young child neurologists from across the world. The key objectives of the programme were to support training, promote educational activities and foster research in child neurology.
There was an overwhelming response to call for nominations from members and a Future Leaders of ICNA (FLICNA) committee was selected from eligible members. The next step would see the elections to the chair of the committee. Nominations were invited recently and the elections will commence shortly.
Under the programme senior ICNA members would provide support, guidance and mentorship to trainees and colleagues in their early stages of their career.
This group would predominantly hold “virtual meetings”, communicating via e-mail and skype and coming together at opportunistic meetings which they would be attending routinely e.g. ICNCs. The lead for this working group will be funded to attend the ICNA EB meetings (once a year) to feedback progress and developments in the program.
Nominations to the committee will be closing shortly. Please visit https://icnapedia.formbin.com/forms/flicna to register your interest.
