Scenario Based Training:   (2-hour session) Faculty mentors are paired up and put in real situations.  Mentors address the needs of the student.  After completing the task mentors and students debrief.  Students discuss how they felt about the approach and process.  Then the mentors have the chance to discuss how they felt the process and approach worked or didn't for them. This is a powerful way to get both perspectives of both the mentor and the student.
