Mentorship facilitates personal growth through pairing trainees with mentors who can share their expertise. In times of global integration, geographical proximity between mentors and mentees is relevant to a lesser degree. This has led to popularization of online mentoring programs. In this editorial, we introduce the history and architecture of the International Online Mentoring Programme organized by the Student and Postdoc Special Interest Group of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping.

Keywords: Career development; early career researchers; mentoring; online mentoring programme; organization for human brain mapping.
