Mentorship Development Opportunity Announced

The UW-Madison Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR) is pleased to announce a professional development opportunity for faculty who are actively mentoring junior faculty, postdocs or graduate students developing research careers. This research mentoring seminar will be co-facilitated by Dr. Corinne Voils and Dr. Matthew Brown.

The 10-hour seminar will be offered in spring 2023 in the form of five two-hour sessions on Wednesdays from 2 to 4 p.m.

Dates are March 8, 15 and 22 and April 12 and 19. Locations are the Health Sciences Learning Center (HSLC 3110B, all dates except for March 15) and the Wisconsin Institutes for Medical Research (WIMR 5001A, March 15 only).

Participants should register by February 15 by completing this brief survey. Enrollment is limited to 12 participants and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

This evidence-based workshop will explore an intellectual framework for research mentoring, providing opportunities for reflection on mentoring skills and a forum to discuss dilemmas and share strategies with a community of peers (see the workshop flyer for more details).

Faculty who are actively mentoring scholars with a mentored career development award (for example, K Awards) are particularly encouraged to attend, but it is open to anyone mentoring junior faculty, postdocs or graduate students in the health sciences.

For questions, please contact Stephanie House at house2@wisc.edu. Those who cannot participate due to scheduling conflicts can be directed to other mentorship development opportunities.
