Are you ready for a whale of an experience? Join GIE’s peer-review mentorship program.

For many, peer review can feel like navigating through uncharted waters. A good way to fast-track your career is by working with one of GIE’s expert mentors to review manuscripts and become a better author yourself.  

Analysis has shown that any young reviewer who has demonstrated interest in publishing (regardless of country of residence, professional rank, or statistical background) has the potential to learn and succeed in GIE’s mentorship program. Dedicating some time on a weekly basis will pay you dividends over the long term.

GIE invites GI fellows and those in the early stages of their career to join its mentorship program. The deadline to apply for the 2022 program is June 15, with the next cohort beginning July 1. Please contact the GIE editorial office for more information or to apply.

GIE is most grateful for the mentors who have generously shared their valuable time and expertise behind the scenes to train tomorrow’s endoscopic researchers. What has started as a pilot project in 2015 has evolved into a well-established program due to the purposeful enthusiasm of the mentors.
