|Careers by Design: Building a Professional Development Blueprint workshop series
Join us on March 29 for the launch of Careers by Design: Building a Professional Development Blueprint. This new workshop series aims to foster healthy lab environments that support the inclusion and well-being of all members, while empowering graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and research/scientific associates to realize their academic and professional goals.
This series will support the introduction of the Individual Development Plan (IDP), created by the Healthy and Inclusive Labs Committee as a tool to support trainee well-being and success. Medicine by Design encourages all labs in our community to adopt this tool, which facilitates open and ongoing conversations between trainees and supervisors about goals, expectations and professional development. Learn more about the IDP.
All workshops will be led by Nana Lee, PhD, Director, Graduate Professional Development & Mentorship, and Assistant Professor in the departments of Biochemistry & Immunology at the University of Toronto (U of T).
Workshop #1 : Optimizing Research Productivity and Professional Development
Explore and learn how to use the IDP at our first workshop on Monday, March 29, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. We encourage graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research/scientific associates and principal investigators from past or current Medicine by Design-funded labs to join us for this first session.
