Attendees learned how to best position themselves for success in obtaining jobs in academic institutions, how to overcome obstacles and challenges, and gain important lab management skills. The event included break-out and panel sessions with options to learn about career-building skills, negotiation tactics for faculty positions, or transitioning into academic careers from different job sectors.
Following the sessions, a networking reception provided the opportunity for attendees to learn more about academic career choices by interacting with panelists in an informal setting.
The Professional & Career Development Series, (including Careers Beyond the Bench and Success in Academia) is a product of the Drexel University College of Medicine Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and Professional Studies.
