CFAR Mentoring Program

The CFAR Mentoring Program targets junior investigators applying for CFAR pilot grants. A mentor team is formed and consists of a research mentor to help develop ideas, a peer mentor to answer questions about matters related to the CFAR, and a career mentor to advise on big-picture career decisions. The CFAR Mentoring Program can assist you in identifying a mentoring team.  

Mentee contracts  and mentor contracts  are required, and are designed to educate each participant on their responsibilities in the mentoring process, 

All junior investigators are encouraged to complete an Individual Development Plan  prior to joining the mentoring program.

A PowerPoint slideshow on the Mentoring Relationship  should be viewed by all mentors and mentees.
