Upcoming Facilitating Entering Mentoring Workshop Opportunities

The Collaborative Center for Health Equity would like to invite you to participate in a train-the-trainers facilitation workshop, Facilitating Entering Mentoring, to promote the spread of research mentor training!

This workshop is being offered by UW-ICTR with support from the NIH to meet the growing demand for an evidence-based approach to research mentor training and to expand dissemination to diverse groups of scholars.

The Facilitating Entering Mentoring workshop is free of charge and is held in conjunction with three upcoming conferences:

Society of the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) Conference in San Antonio, Texas on Wednesday, October 2, 2013

American Public Health Association (APHA) Conference at Boston University on Friday, November 1, 2013

Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday, November, 13, 2013

Further details are provided on the flyer included below.


This Facilitating Mentoring Workshop was initially held during HELI 2013 in Madison, Wisconsin and got rave reviews! All workshop participants indicated the workshop was valuable and reported confidence gains in their ability to facilitate research mentor training. Here are some examples of the feedback from the 30 faculty research mentors who participated:

“I think of myself as a good mentor and this has me realizing that there is so much more that I can do and it makes me want to share this with others.”

“Extremely valuable in order to make training as efficient as possible – especially in the current funding climate.”

“Essential for training 21st century researchers and future professors.”


Enrollment for each workshop is limited to 40 attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.
