Effective Research Mentoring with Suzanne Christopher

Dates: May 20, May 27, June 3
Time: 9:00-11:30 a.m. 
Location: Animal Bioscience 145 
Presenter: Dr. Suzanne Christopher, Health and Human Development. 

How can faculty who supervise researchers (undergraduate and graduate students, post-docs) become the most effective mentor? These workshop sessions led by experienced mentor Dr. Suzanne Christopher of EHHD are based on the Mentoring for Clinical and Translational Researchers curriculum, which has been successfully tested via a multi-site randomized controlled trial led by UW-Madison. The seminar uses a case-based approach to explore an intellectual framework for research mentoring, providing opportunities for reflection on mentoring skills and a forum to solve mentoring dilemmas and share strategies for success (UW ICTR, 2012). This seminar will be offered as three 2.5-hour sessions May 20, May 27, and June 3, all 9:00-11:30 am, limited to 12 participants. Registration is required
