"The future of the field of andrology is dependent on the attraction of talented young scientists and clinicians, top quality training and educational opportunities and continued early career stage mentoring and support. As the official journal of two organizations focused on male reproductive health; the European Academy of Andrology (EAA) and the American Society of Andrology (ASA), Andrology has a unique interest and mission in promoting and supporting high-quality training of young investigators and clinicians. As briefly described below, both the EAA and ASA have implemented and continue to implement progressive programmes to foster the development of young investigators and attract talented trainees to the field. We applaud both societies for their impressive efforts, but also encourage further creative programmes. In this editorial, we highlight the valuable programmes currently available through the EAA, ASA and the International Network for Young Researchers in Male Fertility (INYRMF) and we encourage even more creative focus on the training of future andrologists. Finally, we highlight new ways in which Andrology can further assist in this endeavor."
