Research Mentor Training


The research mentor training is a one day, eight-hour process-based training designed to help research mentors maximize the effectiveness of their mentoring relationships by providing mentors with an intellectual framework, an opportunity to experiment with various methods, and a forum in which to solve mentoring dilemmas with the help of peers. The evidence-based curriculum, developed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN), will be offered in the spring and fall at the University of Utah. CME credit is available to eligible participants through the University of Utah School of Medicine.

The training will cover themes related to research mentoring relationships, such as:

    • Aligning Expectations
    • Addressing Equity and Inclusion
    • Articulating Your Mentoring Philosophy and Plan
    • Assessing Understanding
    • Cultivating Ethical Behavior
    • Enhancing Work-Life Integration
    • Fostering Independence
    • Maintaining Effective Communication
    • Promoting Mentee Research Self-Efficacy
    • Promoting Professional Development
