Peer mentoring teams how to guide
The University of California, San Francisco’s Motivating INformed Decisions (MIND) Program has created a manual for anyone interested in building peer mentoring teams, “Peer Mentoring Teams for Career Exploration.” They developed the method in response to the need for new approaches to introduce graduate students and postdocs to career exploration. Peer mentoring has the added benefit of supporting trainees through the inevitable ups and downs of their training. The manual was created as an internal document to help guide the school; however, they saw that many could benefit and wanted to share the information with anyone interested in creating peer mentoring teams.
