Research Mentee Training

This initiative was implemented during the NRMN Phase I. Since transitioning to NRMN Phase II, these programs have evolved into separate NRMN U01 Interventions. For more information surrounding these NRMN interventions, please click here.

NRMN’s Research Mentee Training workshops are designed to help research mentees maximize the effectiveness of their mentoring relationships.

These workshops are intended for mentees in the biomedical sciences across career stages, including undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, and junior faculty.

Curricular materials are available for trainings that range from a single workshop covering a few topics, to a 10-week summer workshop series, to a comprehensive 1 or 2-semester seminar course that is taken concurrently with independent research credits with a faculty research mentor.

Core training materials for undergraduate mentees are currently available in the Entering Research curriculum. A second edition of this curriculum, including new materials for graduate student mentees, is in development. If you’re interested in pilot testing these materials in spring 2018 please contact Dr. Amanda Butz at

Our evidence-based training includes the following themes:

  • Learning Disciplinary Knowledge
  • Developing Logical/Critical Thinking Skills
  • Developing Technical Research Skills
  • Establishing Responsible and Ethical Research Practices
  • Developing Science Communication Skills (written & verbal)
  • Establishing and Maintaining Professional Relationships (interpersonal skills)
  • Developing Independence as a Researcher
  • Developing Resiliency
  • Developing Research Self-Efficacy
  • Developing Research Identity
