Mentoring Academy nurtures next generation
Lars Berglund, M.D., Ph.D.
Mentors and curriculum focus on developing essential skills to improve research, clinical teaching and leadership. The Academy offers five core modules, which include both didactic and case-based exchanges, as well as specialty workshops that provide more in-depth experiences on a variety of topics, including cultural competencies and methods to give effective feedback. The Mentoring Academy serves as a resource for mentors, helps coordinate oversight for the mentoring process, conducts training for mentors, develops goals and incentives for participants, and evaluates the effectiveness of the mentoring program.
I congratulate Dr. Turgeon and her team members for transforming the Mentoring Academy from plan to reality, and look forward to the growing cadre of faculty mentors who can serve the community to advance research and nurture the next generation of biomedical scientists.
