Harvard Catalyst Education Program
Maximizing the Mentee-Mentor Relationship


This new course helps emerging clinical and translational investigators navigate the complexities of the mentoring dynamic. Emphasizing the perspective of the mentee, this two-day course explores the lifecycle of mentoring relationships through case studies, lectures, and interactive sessions.

Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership
Optimizing Mentor-Mentee Relationships to Facilitate Career Transitions


9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Waterhouse Room, Gordon Hall, Harvard Medical School

This session focuses on mentoring and transitions across academic levels and career paths. The session covers challenges and opportunities that may occur during career transitions, including changes in the mentoring relationship as individuals advance in their career, the need for a shift in mentoring topics, approaches to managing geographical distance, and increasing importance of the mentor as a sponsor. A panel discusses the role that leadership can play in facilitating and supporting career transitions. Within this context, we explore the role that differences may play in the mentoring relationship and how such differences can support growth and both mentor and mentees. The session emphasizes how mentors and mentees can make a mentoring relationship work over the course of a career.
