Frequently asked questions

JuMP stands for Junior Mentorship Program. It is the mentoring program of the scientific society EMAS for young aspiring scientists from the fields of medicine, health sciences and natural sciences.

The main aim of JuMP is to encourage career development of junior clinicians and researchers in the field of post-reproductive health. One expert mentor will be paired with a mentee for 18 months, based on mutual research interests.

JuMP offers you, as the word suggests, a career jump! You get the opportunity to learn from the knowledge and experience of an expert and scientist in the field of post-reproductive health. You will get guidance on how to write a protocol and abstract, how to present at conferences and how to write a paper as well as clinical case solving. The outcomes are a research project, disseminated as a poster or oral presentation at the 2025 EMAS congress, and submission of a research paper to a peer-reviewed journal.

  • oral presentation competition, where you will try to show that your work can stand out amongst your peers!

  • free registration to the EMAS 2025 conference in Valencia for those participants who submit good quality work and are selected for oral presentation

  • free EMAS membership for the next two years for the top 3 presentations as well as a certificate to confirm the best presentation

  • And finally, the best overall presenter will be awarded the invaluable experience of co-chairing the next JuMP session (EMAS 2027) next to a senior EMAS member
