What does an Endocrine Ambassador do?

  • Share our initiatives, membership information, grants and competitions with your colleagues, associated institutions and medical schools.
  • Do you teach? Share our logo on your presentation slides and share initiatives where students can get involved.  
  • Highlighting your Ambassador status on your social media channels, email signature and in your professional portfolio.
  • Organise and/or speak at a careers or endocrine seminar for students, promoting Endocrinology as a speciality
  • Attend a careers fair (school, undergraduate, postgraduate or medical students)
  • Launch an Endocrine Society at your university and/or help established student societies host a lecture, careers talk or workshop.

Achieving your three goals will not only enrich your career development, it allows you to actively contribute to the success of the sector in a meaningful way, whether you are inspiring the next generation of Endocrinologists, helping the Society meet the needs of the sector or increasing the diversity of professionals within the membership so we can progress the field of endocrinology together.

“Being a Society for Endocrinology Ambassador is great, especially when I encourage undergraduate members to join who then go on to win a Summer Studentship. The research experience gained can inspire them to study towards a PhD in the future, which is absolutely fantastic to see.”
Dr Craig Beall, Endocrine Ambassador, University of Exeter.
