If you have not yet submitted your application for the WEO Emerging Stars Program, you can still do so as the application deadline has been extended. Because the current COVID-19 pandemic does not allow detailed planning, the deadline has been extended to:

December 31, 2020.

This will permit more concrete planning for the Third Emerging Stars course and allow potential applicants to consider the possibility of participation, bearing in mind the impact of the current global crisis.

The WEO Emerging Stars Program is for young doctors interested both in developing their “soft skills” and achieving competence in the technical skills required to become effective leaders in the field of digestive endoscopy.

The program, which will take place from 2021 to 2022 in partnership with the WEO Centers of Excellence and other renowned teaching hospitals, offers valuable professional development opportunities. Each module covers both soft skills (e.g. leadership skills, dealing with the media) and technical training (e.g. teaching with models and simulators, new technologies).
