Training program: Career Catalyst

June 04, 2024


September 2024 - June 2025

Applications are due June 28, 2024 by 5:00pm EST.

Career Catalyst is a strategic, one-year mentoring program for early-career researchers. Participants in the program learn how to create a successful mentee-mentor relationship, build a mentoring network, and grow their career.⁠

Now in its eighth iteration, this popular program was awarded the 2022 Harvard Medical School Program Award for Culture of Excellence in Mentoring

In this program, mentees are placed in small groups of three to four participants and are matched with a senior faculty member who serves as a developmental mentor. Each mentee group meets together twice per month, once with their assigned senior mentor, and once as a peer group without their senior mentor. 

To build a sense of community, three program-wide meetings for all mentees and mentors are hosted throughout the year (September, February, and June).
