Mentor Training Program

Applications are now being accepted for the CTSI Mentor Training Program (MTP), a comprehensive program with both online and in-person components, designed to train faculty to be effective mentors. The MTP creates an integrated environment for mentors and mentors-in-training, encouraging creative and innovative networking, discussing a range of mentoring challenges and a myriad of solutions, developing a toolbox of strategies, and using discussions and collective experiences to build a community of mentoring excellence.  In addition to research faculty, many residency and fellowship directors and others who run training programs have found the MTP to be very useful. All are strongly encouraged to apply.

The course consists of six core modules taught through web-based and face-to-face meetings that provide an overview of core mentoring competencies.  We address the learning objectives, through readings (required and suggested), short lectures and videos, as well as self-directed exercises and case studies. 

The next MTP course will be offered in Spring 2021. 

Seminar topics include:

  • Mentorship from the Beginning
  • Mentorship Models and Mentor Selection
  • Aligning Goals and Expectations
  • Communicating Effectively with Mentees
  • Dealing with Mentoring Challenges
  • Mentoring Across Differences
