Alumni Career Paths: Regulatory and Clinical Affairs

November 10, 2020
11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.


Register to receive the Zoom link for this workshop.



November is Regulatory and Clinical Affairs month at the Office of Career and Professional Development. This month, we look at careers in clinical research and regulatory affairs, which are the gateway between discovery research and products out in the world. We'll talk with three professionals who got their scientific training at UCSF and pursued careers in regulatory and clinical affairs about how their values have driven their career choices to get them where they are today. When you register, you get access to the program, our speakers' answers to five common questions trainees have about regulatory and clinical affairs, and the opportunity to connect with the speakers on UCSF Connect.

This program is a collaboration between the Office of Career and Professional Development, Alumni Relations, and the Basic Science Alumni Seminar Series.
