Mentoring Excellence for Developing Leaders

This is an interactive, participant-based course on mentoring excellence. Its objective is to engage mentors at all points in their career and to give them the tools and skills necessary in order to improve their mentoring.

This course is based on a combination of mentoring curricula and techniques that were observed at high performing translational medical centers (UCSF, Harvard, Wisconsin) as well as the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) mentor training. The NRMN curriculum facilitates career-stage appropriate training for mentors and mentees, tailored to foster the success of a diverse group of biomedical researchers, with a specific focus on deepening the alignment and impact of mentoring relationships.
