Nurturing endocrinology’s future leaders

| Society News

Are you ready to be a future leader in endocrinology?

The Leadership & Development Awards Programme is an ambitious initiative which launched last year to recognise and nurture emerging talent in endocrinology. It forms part of the Society’s plan to advance and support our discipline.

Our 12 inaugural Awardees from 2019 are already benefitting from a wide range of opportunities aimed at helping to develop their careers and professional profiles. Could you benefit in 2020?




Benefits available over the course of the 3-year award include:

  • expenses-paid attendance at the annual Society for Endocrinology BES conference
  • a leadership training course
  • a Visiting Fellowship to visit another institution to forge new collaborations or learn new skills
  • access to members of an advisory group for ad hoc career support and advice
  • complimentary membership of the Society for Endocrinology
  • experience of the work of the Society’s committees, journal editorial boards, working groups, guideline and position statement writing groups and interdepartmental peer review
  • opportunities to develop public engagement skills and contribute to public engagement activities.

The Awards Programme aims to identify endocrinology’s outstanding early career talent from both clinical and research backgrounds, to prepare the leaders of tomorrow. If you are interested in developing your leadership skills and helping to advance endocrinology, apply for this exciting opportunity and join our 2019 awardees.

Applications are open for the Leadership & Development Awards Programme from 1 April until 13 May 2020. Visit for more details and full eligibility criteria.


“I feel strongly that the new Leadership & Development Awards Programme will serve the future of the Society and the future of endocrinology well. It will provide unique opportunities for those who apply and I hope it will help to support the careers of our talented trainees.”

Graham Williams, Society President 2016–2019
