“It has been a helpful and wonderful experience. Talking to famous EP experts is always great to improve your career and enlarge your European contacts.”

Dr. Lorenzo Mazzocchetti, Italy

As a young Canadian EP, this is always a great opportunity to hear about ideas in Europe, get feedback on my vision and connect through the networks of my mentors to my peer group in Europe."

Dr. William F. McIntyre, Canada



"The speed mentoring gave me the possibility to gain important insights regarding next possible career steps as well as important steps to take during my EP-fellowship. Moreover, it was a great possibility to network on an international basis with an expert in the field of electrophysiology. Would recommend it to every Young EP."

Dr. Henrike Aenne Katrin Hillmann, Germany



"Contacting one of the EP masters is one of the most important steps in your EP career. A speed mentoring session puts you on a speed trace in your career by taking professional advice from a brilliant electrophysiologist around the world. Don't miss it."
