Roles of Mentors
We view the program’s dual mentorship model as a distinguishing feature that is designed to enable you to flourish as an aspiring researcher in ways that would not be possible in many other doctoral programs. As is true for all relationships, you must be capable of deploying the very best communication strategies to maintain productive working relationships with your mentors and other colleagues. We think it is vitally important for you to know explicitly what we expect of individuals who agree to serve as your mentors. See below several publications we think you will find useful as you develop and grow your relationships with your NIH and UK mentors. As the program evolves, please always feel free to offer suggestions for improvement and to share best practices observed when working with mentors.
