Effective mentoring relationships are critical to developing our next generation of research scientists. MCGSBS has developed a mentoring curriculum based on the University of Wisconsin’s CIMER (Center for the Improvement of Mentored Experiences in Research) Program.
NIGMS and NIH T32 grants are asking that all training programs have a validated and proven mentorship training program. This is also something the Higher Learning Commission (our accreditation agency) is also looking for. Ours is an abbreviated version of the CIMER program from UW-Madison which is accepted by NIH. If you are part of a T32, NIH will ask for this training.
Through your participation in the Maximizing Mentorship Program, mentors will become good mentors, and good mentors will become great mentors.
Maximizing Mentorship: Mentor Training
The complete Maximizing Mentorship Program includes 7.5 hours of micro-lectures, case studies, peer sharing, activities, and more for faculty from the Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences to improve mentor-mentee relationships and develop the next generation of research scientists.
