Mentor Training

If you are already mentoring post docs and entry level faculty and would like to enhance those skills, we invite you to participate in the Mentor Training event! The Mentor Training event is a one-day session hosted at The University of Puerto Rico, Medical Sciences Campus on November 17, 2016 that will help you enhance your mentoring skills!

It was developed by scientists affiliated with the Entering Mentoring series, which has been successfully tested via a multi-site randomized controlled trial (RCT), and is now being used as a framework for training across (NRMN). The session uses a case-based approach to explore an intellectual framework for research mentoring, providing opportunities for reflection on mentoring skills and a forum to solve mentoring dilemmas and share strategies for success.

Findings from the RCT include:

  • Trained mentors reported significantly higher learning gains as compared to the control. They also reported they had implemented more changes in their mentoring practice.
  • 88% of seminar participants reported that the 8-hour seminar was a valuable use of their time and 90% said they would recommend it to a colleague.
  • Mentees of Trained Mentors noted a greater number of positive changes in their mentoring relationship over the study period.
