Mentor Training

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences describes mentoring as "a relationship between a more experienced person, the mentor, and a less experienced person, the mentee or trainee, within which important career skills are transferred from one to the other. The mentoring relationship is an agreement between two people that the mentor will take a long-term interest in the career development and aspirations of the mentee. This is a serious responsibility for the mentor, who must accept that he or she has taken on an important, perhaps life-long, role in another's career." The resources below are available to support and enhance the mentor-mentee relationship.
