Registration for this year’s workshop is currently closed.

The Knight ADRC Research Education Component (REC) is developing a comprehensive mentor training and support program for junior and senior faculty in Alzheimer disease and related disorders (ADRD) research.  This program will provide a six session mentoring workshop series, with each session focusing on education and resources in different aspects of the mentoring process.

In this inaugural workshop course, attendees will receive the skills and framework needed to assist mentees in creating an Individual Development Plan that is based on the individual’s long-term vision and that aligns with the institutional environment.  The course will be led by Dr. Nimish Mohile, a Professor in the Department of Neurology and Associate Chair for Development and Leadership at the University of Rochester.  Dr. Mohile will provide attendees not only learning skills, but the opportunity to work in a structured format to identify and prioritize values, set vision and goals, and create an action plan.
