Clinical Research Coordinator Mentor Program

The Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC) Mentor Program provides community, knowledge sharing, career development coaching and partnership among Northwestern’s CRC workforce. This program is structured as a cohort model, consisting of monthly, topic-focused 60-minute group mentoring sessions. Mentee participants also have the opportunity to meet with their assigned mentor for one-on-one meetings.

Mentors in the program are experienced and motivated CRCs with at least five years of expertise looking to guide new and less experienced CRCs and to contribute to the development of the CRC workforce. It is kindly requested that mentors are comfortable with zoom presentations.

Mentees include CRCs with less than three years of experience in their role looking to learn from engaging, experienced CRCs. Selected mentees will be placed in a small mentee cohort group for the duration of the program.

We review applications to ensure that job responsibilities and experience level align with our program goals. NUCATS may solicit supervisor approval prior as part of the review process. The current CRC mentor cohorts for the 2021-2022 session are confirmed. A call for mentee applications for the 2022-2023 session will be announced in summer 2022.
