Research Mentor Training

Contributions to Research Mentor Training Curricula by individuals and funding agencies are listed below.

The Research Mentor Training Seminar curriculum was originally developed by the Wisconsin Program for Scientific Teaching with support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professors Program. This curriculum was published as Entering Mentoring by J. Handelsman, C. Pfund, S.M. Lauffer, and C. Pribbenow.

The work was then adapted across science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines through the Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) and its Delta Program at the University of Wisconsin–Madison with funding from the National Science Foundation (Grant # 0717731). The work was further adapted for use across biomedical disciplines with support from the National Institutes of Health (Grant # 3UL1RR025011-03S2).

A new version of Entering Mentoring was published in 2014 by W.H. Freeman and Co. By C. Pfund, J. Branchaw, and J. Handelsman.
