Students and Postdocs at the Office of Career and Professional Development

 

We invite students and postdoctoral scholars to get real-world work experience by forwarding career and professional development projects for biomedical trainees.

Career and Professional Development Leadership Program (PhD students and Postdoctoral Scholars)

The goal of the Career and Professional Development Leadership Program is to foster a cohort of PhD students and postdocs with deep knowledge and training in career and professional development. These leaders then serve as liaisons, facilitators, peer advisors, and an advisory body for the Office of Career and Professional Development’s programs and services. Participants lead quarterly peer mentoring groups on career/professional development topics; and develop new career and professional development initiatives, such as creating tailored resources/programs for BIPOC students/scholars; international students/scholars; and social and population scientists.

Applications take place in the late spring/early summer; the program runs from approximately August through June each year. See the 2022 application and register for our listserv to be informed when applications open. Please contact OCPD Program Manager David Blancha with any questions.
 

Career Peer Leadership Professional Development Program (Health Professional students)

The Career Peer Leadership Professional Development Program was created as a way to build Health Professional students' professional communication and leadership skills, while providing opportunities for interprofessional community collaboration and career development learning.  The program mentors and trains participants on the foundations and nuances of professional communication, and best practices for developing competitive application materials for both residency and employment for each of our health professional populations.  

Applications take place in the late spring/early summer; the program runs from approximately August through June each year. See the call for applications and register for our listserv to be informed when applications open. Please contact OCPD Program Manager Lydia Erickson with any questions.
