Developing & Enhancing Mentoring Relationships

This monthly series consists of 90-minute workshops (some sessions to occur in-person, some sessions via Zoom) designed to prepare mentors and mentees to be effective and successful in their roles. Via presentation of evidence-based best practices, these sessions use an open discussion format, breakout groups, and hypothetical case scenarios as the impetus for participants to reflect on their own experiences in mentoring — as a mentee and/or as a mentor.

The workshops are open to Feinberg School of Medicine faculty of all ranks and career tracks. In-person attendance will be capped at 40 participants.

Dates & Schedules

The 2024-2025 Developing and Enhancing Mentoring Relationships series will begin in October 2024.  Sessions will take place on the second Thursday of the month from 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. Please check back in September to view the new schedule. (The 2023-2024 schedule is included below for reference in the meantime).

TAPH Lecture: Mentoring the Mentors: NUCATS Programming, Assessment, and Outcomes

Mentoring in academic medicine has long been conceived of as both an expectation and “a given.” How mentoring is happening, if it is being done well, how it could be done differently, and how it can be improved have less often been explored. Director of NUCATS Mentoring Programs Kenzie Cameron, Ph.D., MPH, recently shared the innovative changes made to the mentoring programs offered through the NUCATS Institute and discussed the assessment and outcomes of current programs. The Translational Applications in Public Health lecture series is a collaboration between the Institute for Public Health and Medicine and the NUCATS Institute.
