Faculty Workshop in Mentoring Biomedical PhD students

Event Description

The NIH is requiring faculty to be trained in how to mentor PhD students. We are therefore offering these workshops for faculty in the biological sciences with new case studies each time. This will make our programs more competitive for training grants and pre-doctoral fellowships. All faculty are invited and junior faculty are strongly encouraged to attend.

Topics and interactive case studies led by Jim Millonig and Janet Alder will include: Rationale for mentoring the mentors Academic resources offered in biomedical sciences at Rutgers Managing student projects (e.g. responsibilities of mentor and mentee, expectations for graduation)Funding for students (e.g. internal and external sources)Professional development for students (e.g. Individual Developmental Plans, career advising)Student issues (e.g. identifying mental health issues, avoiding bias, and improving communication)

RWJMS Research Tower, Dean's Conference Room, R123; lunch will be served
