In the spring of 2013, we created a Mentorship Development program to institutionalize mentorship in LMIC countries. The program includes workshops, readings and online resources, and regional conversations about culturally relevant mentorship. The primary objective of the program is to provide junior faculty and post-doctoral trainees with skills and knowledge to develop into mentors.
Our first “Mentoring the Mentors” workshops were hosted in Kenya and Peru in the early summer of 2013 and provided nearly 65 mentors with training on the fundamentals of global health mentorship. The agenda and resources from the meetings are posted below.
