CO-Mentor Training Program

Provides instruction to faculty members who have mentored others for years, but have not had formal training. Evidence-based strategies will teach mentor/mentee pairs the skills they need to get the most out of their mentoring relationships.

Most training occurs in mentor/mentee pairs; however, some activities will be for mentors or mentees separately. The goal is to help participants build practical, overarching skills for mentoring success.

All sessions will take place on the Anschutz Medical Campus from 10:00 am - 3:00 pm.

How to Apply

The CO-Mentor application should be submitted by the mentee only. The mentee will be prompted to enter the mentor's name in the application. The mentor should not submit an application on their own. Each mentoring pair must commit to attend all sessions, or plan to bring a substitute partner for each date. In exchange for this commitment, there will be no charge to participate in this program.

Please contact Greg Austin, MD, MPH for questions about the program.
