In my line of work being enrolled on ECCF has meant that I have been unable to enrol on a mentorship programme, and due to taking time out for academic commitments I have been passed by for clinical development opportunities. (Fellow) Limitations Low response rate Polarised views Not possible to triangulate the views of Fellows with those of their manager and mentor - opinions of individuals were not corroborated. Benefit and value for money?
