This course is for faculty who would like to assess their readiness and skills to be strong peer mentors, and who aspire to refine their repertoires in order to have a positive impact in mentoring a new generation of Stanford faculty.
The course is comprised of 4 modules that can be completed at an individual pace (2.5 CME hours). It includes research evidence, readings, tools, and several vignettes of common mentoring experiences among faculty. The course highlights themes such as good and bad starts, stress, mood, gender and inter-generational dynamics, and giving and receiving feedback.
