Career and Professional Development

The Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Career and Professional Development Team was established in 2017 and uses a rigorous and tailored approach in their intentionally planned programs to meet the needs of their graduate, postdoctoral, and postbaccalaureate communities. Their programs are intended to empower learners in the eight competency areas using a hands-on approach. They have cultivated strong relationships with several units within the UM Medical School and university overall, allowing for successful collaborative programming across these units.

The Career and Professional Development Team strives to ensure that every member of their academic community can develop the necessary professional skills and use the best resources available to enhance their current training outcomes and to smoothly transition into their chosen career paths. They provide both one-on-one career advising and weekly programmed events which are constantly tuned based on sound pedagogy, feedback data from attendees, and input from students, faculty advisors, staff, and leadership.
