Description

The support of talented mentors can be the lynchpin for launching an independent research career. The authors describe an online professional development curriculum for faculty members who mentor early-career investigators.

Content is organized into five modules that cover mentoring models, mentor roles and responsibilities, structure and dynamics of the mentoring relationship, and strategies for facilitating, and addressing challenges to, the mentoring process. The course engages learners through text, audio, mini-presentations, self-assessments, and other interactive activities.
