An important element of the Clinical and Translational Science Education Program is the formative relationship established between a scholar and his or her mentor. This relationship forms the basis for the clinical research development of the scholar, as well as the primary source for the formal and informal acculturation of the scholar as a clinical investigator. Mentors also play a critical role in assisting scholars in identifying and pursuing appropriate education, training and other career development goals.
