Updated timeline shows graduate students how and when to engage OCPD

This resource is updated frequently. For current timelines, including text versions, please visit: Timeline for Engaging OCPD

We've recently updated our timeline for graduate students in basic and biomedical science PhD programs! It shows the full array of OCPD's programs and resources laid out on the five years of a PhD program in a Gantt-style chart and includes links to our programing and resources.

Timeline for engaging with OCPD as a basic and biomedical science graduate student

This timeline resource helps students in many ways, including:

  1. Catalogues all of OCPD's resources for graduate students in one place, including counseling topics
  2. Emphasizes that some OCPD programs are recommended for all students, regardless of career plans
  3. Demonstrates how OCPD programs can be taken in conjunction for maximal benefit
  4. Indicates when each OCPD resource is relevant and available to graduate students
  5. Suggests structure for graduate students making yearly plans or career plans

Versions for postdocs and for social and population science graduate students are coming soon too.
