iCAM: Introduction to Culturally Aware Mentorship - Reviewer Disclosure

Most faculty learn to mentor by experimenting and analyzing success and failure over numerous years before developing an effective method of mentoring. The lack of formal mentor training, results in the faculty mentor being non-effective in the mentor-mentee relationship/partnership, particularly where cultural, ethnic, or racial differences exist. The goal of this course is to accelerate the process of becoming an effective faculty mentor to underrepresented (UR) trainees. Our approach provides mentors with an intellectual framework providing through an online mentoring curriculum.

Intended Audience

Mentors in the medical and biomedical research disciplines, especially for underrepresented (UR) trainees

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss how cultural diversity issues are related to trainees' development, academic outcomes, and career success.
  2. Recognize how world views arising from cultural experiences can affect interactions with trainees of a racially or culturally different background.
