Effective mentoring and leadership development are some of the most critical components of a successful academic career. The University of Utah will launch the Utah Health Equity Leadership & Mentoring (U-HELM) program in 2018 with the goal of enhancing the academic excellence and leadership capacity of faculty and postdocs from underrepresented populations in the health sciences as well as health equity researchers at UU. U-HELM will focus on some of the challenges that trainees from minority and underserved groups as well as other faculty whose research is addressing health equity may face.
Current UU postdocs and junior faculty from and/or working with minority or underserved populations who are interested in mentoring, leadership development, and networking. This is not a research training program and fellows from all areas of University of Utah Health are encouraged to apply.
U-HELM Application Deadline: Monday, August 20 at 12pm
Kickoff: Monday, September 17, 2018 from 12:00-4:30 pm
Monthly Seminar Series Sessions: 2nd Fridays of each month from 11:30-1:30 pm (October 2018-June 2019)
