Race Matters: Building the 21st Century Clinician and Scientist

Presenter: Angela Byars-Winston, PhD Associate Professor, General Internal Medicine; Director of Research and Evaluation, Center for Women’s Health Research, University of Wisconsin

  • What does the world outside have to do with the world of science, biomedical research and healthcare?
  • What do discussions of race have to do with mentoring and training the next generation of health professionals?

Dr. Byars-Winston is a psychologist and nationally-recognized expert on cultural influences on career development and mentoring, especially for racial and ethnic minorities and women in the sciences and medicine. Her research has focused on testing the validity of theoretical models to explain and predict academic and career outcomes using social cognitive theoretical approaches. She is currently co-leading a four-year, $1.4 million NIH grant to assess how mentors and mentees define cultural diversity awareness and how important this awareness is to the mentoring relationship. She is also part of a national team that has been awarded a five-year $19 million grant from NIH to establish a national research mentoring network (NRMN).


Thursday, January 21, 3:30-5:00 PM, Parnassus CL220-223
Conversations on Skills-Building with Clinician Educator Mentors and Peers

All faculty must clearly articulate their career goals in the context of thoughtful mentoring to achieve successful careers. Rather than relying on one senior person for advice, clinician educators in particular can greatly benefit from having a "council" of mentors. This interactive session will include two main activities: 1) Conversations with experienced clinician educators on how they achieved their career goals; and 2) Skill-building to help participants identify and develop their own council of peer mentors. This session is open to junior, mid-level, and senior faculty from all schools, though we will focus most of our case material on clinician educator faculty.

Presenters Anna Chang, MD; Calvin Chou, MD, PhD; Peter Chin-Hong, MD; Brian Schwartz, MD
