Want to be a more effective research mentor?

Join us in April 2022 for one of two case-based training opportunities for faculty members with mentees preparing for research careers in biomedical, behavioral, clinical, and social sciences.

If you are responsible for mentoring Tufts CTSI’s graduate education program’s fellows (TL1) and scholars (KL2), this is a great opportunity to complete the mentor training recommended every other year.

Meet peers and faculty members with expertise in mentoring and career development, and advance your skills in:

  • Goal-setting and alignment
  • Feedback (giving and receiving)
  • Diversity and unconscious bias
  • Relational boundaries
  • Wellness and resiliency.

Requirements for the training:

  • Complete online pre-work (approximately 45 minutes) on the Tufts CTSI I LEARN platform prior to attending the live session.
  • Participate actively during the live session (3 hours) and share mentoring experiences.
  • Answer follow-up surveys about the outcomes and impact of this training on your mentees.

After completing one of these sessions, you should be able to:

  • Describe the difference between advising, coaching, and mentoring.
  • Explain the importance of communication in the mentor/mentee relationship.
  • Discuss common mentoring challenges and possible solutions.
  • Identify mentoring tools and resources that you can use with your mentees.
  • Articulate ways that wellness and resiliency strategies can be integrated into the mentoring process.


Monday April 4, 1:00-4:00PM EDT, via Zoom

Each session is limited to 8-12 participants to optimize small group and peer learning. Admission to mentor training is by open to faculty at any rank and is open to faculty across our partner network. Please register for only ONE session.

Submit your application for this session by March 28, 2022.
