Professor Elizabeth Jackson, M.D., MPH, and Associate Professor Christy Carter, Ph.D., facilitate a nine-session training series that explores the art of mentorship through case studies. Both DOM faculty—Dr. Jackson in Cardiovascular Disease and Dr. Carter in Gerontology, Geriatrics and Palliative Care—see it as an important investment in the future of academic medicine. The sessions focus on different aspects of the mentor-mentee relationship, with a cross-cutting theme of communication. The two facilitators bring diverse experience and perspective to helping others cultivate this career-enhancing skill. The course is offered virtually to investigators from any level across the CCTS partner network, and participants who complete all sessions receive a certificate.
