The CNTRP Training and Career Development Program facilitates the development of competence in donation and transplantation. Mentorship is a key component in the development of technical, clinical, ethical and scientific knowledge and competence needed to fulfill the aims of the CNTRP.  All academic trainees within the CNTRP are required to have a mentorship plan for achieving their personal goals. Mentors will guide trainees during their proposed research training experience in relevant academic, leadership, and research areas. Mentors will enhance the suitability and experience for the proposed work in this training environment (e.g. originality, technical ability, demonstrated skills, judgment, critical skills, etc). Academic trainees are required to clearly describe the rationale behind the selection of the mentorship advisors and how the mentors relate to their career development plan.
