So You’ve Got a Research Mentor…So What?



Simply having a research mentor is only the first step. What can you do to cultivate a career-long relationship with your research mentor?

Webinar participants will:

  • Discuss the benefits of research mentors
  • Identify practical skills for working with research mentors
  • Review communication skills
  • Explore techniques for navigating difficulties in the mentor-mentee relationship
