Are you a postdoc or PhD student looking for support and community as you navigate your time at UCSF, explore career options, or work on getting professional expereince? In this info session, we'll introduce you to our Peer Teams model for facilitated small groups. This event does not require any active participation. However, you are welcome to bring any questions you have -- we'll be happy to answer them!

Our Peer Teams

The OCPD offers small-group “peer teams” to guide UCSF doctoral students and postdocs through critical moments in their career and professional development.

Based on the peer team model developed as part of UCSF’s Making INformed Decisions (MIND) program, our Peer Teams are small groups (5-7 students/postdocs) led by facilitators, which support their members in making significant progress toward a shared career/professional development goal. Peer teams support this process by providing advice, accountability, shared experiences, and cheerleading. Facilitators, who are OCPD career counselors or interns, provide advice and mentorship. They also help peer teams share time equitably, and keep the focus on problem-solving.
