Description: Soon the summer interns will descend on the NIH. This provides you the opportunity and responsibility to mentor enthusiastic young scientists. Your PI may put one or more of them under your charge to guide them in your research setting. Do you know what your intern(s) will do this summer? Have you thought about the best way to design a summer project for a novice? This workshop offers tips on how to help shape the future of the next generation of scientists, while preserving your own projects. Additionally, you may choose to lead a summer intern journal club. This workshop will provide guidance in selecting the right articles, guiding a discussion, and mentoring students on discussing scientific topics.
