  • Expand your mentoring team and learn best practices for mentees and mentors
  • Describe the important aspects of being a successful faculty member, and prepare accordingly during their training at UF
  • Identify key elements of being a faculty member at different types of institutions

 

The Spring 2022 program will be offered through synchronous meetings via Zoom. Applications will be accepted from October 7 until October 29, 2020.
