Mentor Development Workshops

Mentor Development Workshops are available in four-hour sessions to assist your group, department or division in addressing key concerns and challenges encountered by mentors.  This training was developed based on Mentor Training for Clinical and Translational Researchers, a University of Wisconsin Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) led multi-site randomized controlled trial to test the effectiveness of a training program for mentors of junior faculty conducting clinical and translational research. Northwestern University was one of sixteen total sites to participate in this study led by Dr. Michael Fleming. 

Mentor Development Workshops use open discussion format and breakout groups as well as hypothetical case scenarios as an impetus for participants to reflect on their own experiences in mentoring.  Typically, the workshops allow participants to be in focused small groups based on their faculty rank that allow individual facilitators to focus groups on being good mentees as well as being good mentors as appropriate.  The cross-disciplinary content covers the following approaches: (1) Maintaining Effective Communication, (2) Establishing Expectations, and (3) Promoting Professional Development.
