The National Research Mentoring Network (NRMN) is a nationwide consortium of biomedical professionals and institutions collaborating to enhance diversity and support research scientists in their progression through each stage of the workforce. This consortium has trained and certified 35 Master Facilitators from 16 institutions to implement evidence-based research -mentoring curricula at all levels of expertise from undergraduates to junior faculty.
As a master facilitator I implement seminars of the curriculum “Entering Research: A Facilitator’s Manual: Workshops for Students beginning Research in Science.” This curriculum consists of 95 evidence based, active learning activities that can be implemented in the training of undergraduate or graduate students. The activities are grouped by Meta Learning Objectives and Areas of Training Development such as: Research Comprehension and Communications skills, Practical research skills, Research ethics, Researcher Identity, Research Confidence & Independence, Equity and Inclusion Awareness and Skills and Professional & Career Development Skills. These activities can be implemented from an exposure level experience through a research-intensive experience. This curriculum is flexible and allows for the development of research mentoring programs at any level of research experience.
