To start successful peer-mentoring relationships, mentors have to build trust, ascertain the most valuable way to spend time, identify central mentoring questions, and create an agenda for further meetings. This workshop, designed for faculty who mentor other faculty, will introduce participants to evidence-based approaches that help them succeed in these tasks. An applied practice session will help embed the learning.

Participants are invited to “brown bag” their lunch and bring it to the workshop.
