Pathology PhD Program Awarded Professional Development Grant

PhD Graduate Program event

The Graduate School awarded nine Professional Development Grants to support discipline-specific programming for graduate students in January 2017.  The grants, established in 2014, award up to $2,000 to help graduate students and their departments create discipline-specific professional development programming and resources for exploring both academic and nonacademic career options. Such programming complements the offerings from The Graduate School, which focus on topics that are applicable across disciplines.

Pathology was awarded $500 and will match the funds for the new program with the goals of developing a mentoring and professional development program with events that focus on building and strengthening the community of pathology students, staff, and faculty and providing networking and development opportunities for Ph.D. students with pathology graduate alumni while teaching transferable skills.
