Mentoring Resources

Mentoring is the key to helping you successfully navigate your career path. Effective mentoring can be the difference between reaching independence and missing the mark. This site provides resources for mentees and mentors at every stage. Whether you are just getting started or are looking for ways to get more out of the mentoring relationship, we have resources to help you. We explore topics such as deciding on the right mentoring model, communicating effectively, giving and receiving feedback, and finding strategies for problem solving.

Feel free to read our articles (choose a topic from the menu on the left). We have many of the tools needed to enhance your mentoring experience whether you are a mentor or mentee.


New Program Launching

Professional Mentoring Skills Enhancing Diversity (PROMISED)

PROMISED is a new program funded by the National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) and offered by the ICRE. It is designed to help mentors develop and grow their leadership and career coaching skills in order to better support and guide mentees from diverse backgrounds. The goal of NRMN and PROMISED is to enhance the diversity of the biomedical workforce.

If you are interested in influencing diverse mentees in their successful pursuit of biomedical science careers, we encourage you to apply to PROMISED. We are now accepting applications for Fall 2016.
