Do you want to develop and hone your mentoring skills? Consider applying for the MICHR Mentoring Academy. The Mentoring Academy is designed for senior postdocs and faculty in clinical and translational research. Participants in this program will learn how to better coach and counsel other less-experienced mentors as well as enhance their own interpersonal skills for mutually beneficial mentor-mentee interactions. Participants in the Mentoring Academy will address challenges facing faculty mentors via case studies, group discussions, and role-plays.
The Mentoring Academy will consist of six required one-hour sessions based on the widely used Mentor Training for Clinical and Translational Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research.
