NIH offers training to support extramural PIs and staff in new series

The NIH Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE) is pleased to offer the RAISING A RESILIENT SCIENTIST series for faculty, staff scientists, and administrators who mentor students and postdoctoral fellows in the biomedical, behavioral, and social sciences. A variety of topics will be covered with a specific focus on communication and shared problem-solving to help trainees deal with the inevitable setbacks experienced in high knowledge environments.

The goal of the series is to promote the mental health and well-being of the academic research community by supporting faculty and administrators to develop self-management, relationship-management, and mentoring skills.

The five-unit series will start on November 9, 2022—each unit consisting of a 75-minute lecture followed by a 1-hour facilitated discussion with peers.

Previous participants found participation very valuable, and the tools presented practical and actionable. Here is what those who participated had to say:

"Informative workshop that I think all faculty should be required to attend. Making this a requirement for mentoring teams for fellowship and training grants would be a great approach! They need to be invested in mentoring and training, as much as training fellows."

"Thank you! I've done a lot of mentoring workshops/training but feel like this one is already taking things to another level."

"This course needs to be offered again and again, such an important resource in any academic curriculum."

There is no charge for participation, but advanced registration is required. For more information, and to register, visit
