Mentorship

Guidance in navigating research careers

Mentorship is an important component of professional growth. Fellows and junior faculty members typically require a research mentor to help guide the development of their research careers. Mentorship can be a formal or informal process.

Mentorship Training

The OSU CCTS has adapted a University of Wisconsin-Madison mentor training and offers it to mentors across campus. The training uses a case-based approach to explore an intellectual framework for mentoring, and allow mentors a forum to solve mentoring dilemmas with their peers. It is presented over four, 2-hour sessions. Topics will include:

  • approaches to research mentoring;
  • maintaining effective communications;
  • assessing understanding;
  • establishing expectations;
  • addressing diversity; and
  • fostering independence, and promoting professional development.

Mentorship Best Practices

The Mentorship Best Practices document was born out of a clear need for mentors and support for mentoring relationships throughout the OSU College of Medicine. A workgroup of faculty across the OSU health sciences colleges developed the Mentorship Best Practices as a guide for both mentors and mentees to help ensure a successful relationship. The document contains information on defining a mentor, describing effective characteristics of a mentor, expectations for the mentee, mentorship support, and the mentorship process.
