There are many mentoring opportunities across BWH, MGB, and HMS. If you are interested in taking on additional responsibilities in mentoring, we encourage you to check out the resources and opportunities below.
We also suggest letting your mentor know you are interested in pursuing mentoring as they may know of more specific opportunities related to your field of research.
Postdoc Scholars Award for Excellence in Mentoring
Nominations accepted annually in July.
This award recognizes postdoctoral fellows’ efforts in mentoring fellow postdocs, students or interns on research projects and/or career development. Winners are awarded a cash award of $1,000 and recognized at the annual National Postdoc Appreciation Week in September.
Mentoring Circles Program (MCP)
MCP is a program created by postdocs, for postdocs, to help fellows get the most out of their training at BWH. Two mentors (senior postdocs) meet 5-7 mentees (junior postdocs) on a monthly basis to give advice and advance their career.
CURE Mentoring Program
The Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences Program (CURE), administered by the DF/HCC Initiative to Eliminate Cancer Disparities, allows postdocs to mentor a high school or undergraduate student in their lab
BWH Mentoring Toolkit
The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Mentoring Curriculum & Toolkit was developed to help mentors and mentees in academic medical settings navigate the challenges of mentoring relationships, build effective “developmental networks”
