Benefits of Mentorship
- Meet colleagues from other Georgia CTSA institutions,
- Improve communication skills,
- Understand your strengths and areas for development through self-assessment,
- Hone grant writing skills,
- Obtain 1:1 and group mentoring, and
- Develop a personalized individual development plan
The goal of Georgia CTSA TEAMS is to identify a mentor who can provide networking opportunities and support in the area of team science, professional development, and research skill-building. The program is not designed to match mentors and fellows on substantive areas of research or directly facilitate research collaboration.
Junior faculty, post-docs and clinical fellows at a Georgia CTSA partner institution are eligible to participate.
Approximately 3-4 hours per month for the length of the program.
Individuals selected for the program are expected to:
- Attend three in-person events (kickoff, mid-year, and graduation)
- Actively participate in monthly learning community meetings remotely or in-person
- Meet for at least one hour per month, remotely or in person, with your assigned 1:1 mentor
Fellows will be challenged to “drive” the relationship with their 1:1 mentor to ensure maximum benefit.
Application and Selection Process
There is no limit to the number of nominations from each institution, but final selections will be made to ensure diverse representation across the Georgia CTSA and will be limited to 20-25 individuals.
The fellow application consist of three parts:
- Online application
