Joys and Challenges of Distance Mentoring

3:45 – 4:00 PM Laurence Huang – Wrap Up

Distance mentoring mentoring roles
Distance Mentoring – Mentoring Roles

  • Distance mentoring can apply to all of the UCSF MDP mentoring roles and definitions

Distance mentoring rewards and challenges of mentoring
Distance Mentoring –Rewards and Challenges of Mentoring

  • Distance mentoring has all of the same rewards and challenges as “conventional” mentoring

    • Potential for greater reward?

      • Greater need/impact = greater reward?

    • Additional challenge of limited in-person interactions, requirement for alternative communication (e.g., e-mail, phone, Skype), and potential for cultural differences (especially international mentees)

Distance mentoring communicating effectively with mentees
Distance Mentoring –Communicating Effectively with Mentees

  • Potential for miscommunication is increased in distance mentoring

  • Active listening involves forgoing all other activities for the time being and giving your full attention to the act of listening to ensure that you understand the speaker's intent as well as the feelings behind the speaker's words ...

Distance mentoring life work balance
Distance Mentoring – Life-Work Balance

  • Distance mentoring can affect a mentor’s (and mentee’s) life-work balance

    • International travel - Conference calls during “non-work” hours

Distance mentoring understanding diversity
Distance Mentoring – Understanding Diversity

  • For distance mentoring in an international setting, understanding cultural differences can be challenging (bi-directional)

    • Example 1: Role of physicians

    • Example 2: Role of women

Distance mentoring understanding economic and fiscal realities
Distance Mentoring – Understanding Economic and Fiscal Realities

  • For distance mentoring in an international setting, understanding economic and fiscal realities can be challenging (bi-directional)

    • Example 1: Economic realities regarding extended families

    • Example 2: Fiscal realities regarding allowed NIH expenses

Distance mentoring grants and the irb
Distance Mentoring – Grants and the IRB

  • For distance mentoring in an international setting, grant management and the IRB pose additional challenges

    • Grants: Subcontracts, advances, 8% international F&A

    • IRB Ex 1: Subject reimbursement

    • IRB Ex 2: Research procedures

      • Risk:Benefit

      • Subject reimbursement

      • Insurance

Distance mentoring understanding academic advancement
Distance Mentoring – Understanding Academic Advancement

  • The academic advancement policies and the “value” attached to different activities and accomplishments may differ greatly at mentor and mentee’s institutions

    • Ex: UCSF vs. CDC and NIH

    • Ex: University College London
