Your success as an NIH trainee depends on having a collaborative learning relationship with your primary research supervisor(s) and the cultivation of strong mentor relationships, in and out of the research group. This workshop will explore the relationship between trainees and research mentors with the goal of providing strategies for improved communication and interpersonal interactions. The workshop will help participants clarify what they need from their supervisors and mentors and will discuss strategies for improving the quality of mentoring interactions.
