Career Advisors

Each matriculating student is matched with a career advisor who is an expert in the student's chosen field of interest. This initial pairing can change over the course of the training in order to accommodate the student's changing research interests or to balance clinical and basic science input. The career advisor meets with each advisee at least biannually to discuss the student's academic performance, level of laboratory independence (capacity to identify direction of experimentation and critically evaluate data), grasp of project and related literature, professional development, social interaction skills, work presentations, quality of writing/presentation, teaching experience, and evaluation.
