Mentorship is the foundation of our research program.
Mentorship may apply to:
Junior Research Faculty
Division research staff
Stanford part-time undergraduate or medical school students
Summer research interns
Stanford MedScholars students
Clinic/OR Shadow students
A faculty mentor is responsible for working closely with the mentee on:
Defining the research question
Defining roles and responsibilities for each member of research team, including authorship
Encouraging mentees to works toward individual goals
The research experience for students and staff should not only aim to enhance their understanding of research on a whole but to result in tangible work products (i.e. abstracts, publications, attendance at conferences) that facilitate career objectives.
