Interested in mentorship? Attend the Michigan Mentorship Academy!

February 11, 2019  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Exemplary mentorship is a major way that U-M trains the next generation of physicians and scholars.

To assist those who want to learn about how to mentor and be mentored, the university has designed a full-day educational experience, “The Michigan Mentorship Academy.” It will take place on Saturday, June 22 at the North Campus Research Complex.

This event is targeted toward mentor-mentee dyads, faculty development leaders interested in mentorship and increasing the success of mentees (this could also include program directors and departmental leaders), individual mentors looking to improve their mentorship capabilities, and junior people (residents, fellows, junior faculty) looking to get the most out of their mentoring relationships.

The event will include a combination of lectures, panel discussions, question and answer sessions, small group discussions and role play. Topics will include:

  • What mentors wish their mentees knew
  • Helping mentees craft their trajectories: Finding the golden nugget
  • Mentee missteps
  • Mentoring millenials
  • Mentoring across race, gender and ethnicity
  • Building a culture of mentorship
  • Positive mentorship

Registration is now open. Visit the registration page to purchase your ticket and secure your spot! Register here.
