Member Benefit: Mentoring Program

Whether you are new to the research oversight world or have years of experience, there is a place for you in PRIM&R’s Mentoring Program. This program matches individuals in the early stages of their careers or facing work-related challenges with seasoned professionals who provide ongoing or occasional guidance on a volunteer basis.

How the Program Works

Mentors and mentees are paired based on criteria such as specific areas of interest, institution type, and goals. Once a match is made, the two individuals become responsible for structuring a collaboration that works best for them. PRIM&R staff will check in periodically with both participants to ensure the fit and success of their relationship. We will also provide you with our Mentoring Toolkit, which includes tips for success, expectations, and a worksheet to help you structure your first meeting. Download our Mentoring Toolkit here.

Who should be a mentee?
