Effective mentoring is critical in academic advancement and has been linked to greater productivity, research independence, and career satisfaction. Despite the importance of mentoring to career success, formal training to maximize the value of mentoring relationships has typically not been provided to the research community. During this workshop, we will use evidence-based methods to help participants develop skills to maximize the effectiveness of their mentoring relationships. Trainees will utilize case studies and small-group discussions to build key mentoring competencies that support aligning expectations and effective communication.This workshop is recommended for 1st and 2nd year Ph.D. trainees in Life and Biomedical Sciences.
