PREPARING TO TEACH AND ADVISE BIOMEDICAL GRAD STUDENTS AND POSTDOCS AROUND CAREER AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: A TRAIN-THE-TRAINERS EVENT

The NIH Office of Intramural Training & Education, in collaboration with the AAMC GREAT group, is hosting the second "Train-the-Trainers" event for advisors, staff and faculty who provide career and professional development programming and guidance to graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the biomedical sciences.

Audience:

  • Leaders and administrators of graduate programs and postdoctoral offices
  • Career development professionals working with biomedical scientists/trainees
  • For past attendees, we strived to add content to increase your knowledge, skills and confidence in trainee advising. We anticipate you will find new information, and encourage you to come again.

Why should you attend?

Start or add-to the trainings that you provide at your campus! Over 150 people attended in 2016, and some quotes from those who attended: "Most I have learned in a workshop over past 10 years" and "Gave me multiple ideas for implementation". In a 6-month follow up survey, 89% of all respondents had developed new material and/or modified existing materials that they were able to present at their institutions. Our goal is for you to gain the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to implement the content at your institution.

Take a look at the agenda

Content themes:

  • Career Advising: improve your career consultations using theories and practices from career counseling
  • Conflict and Feedback: understand conflict theories and feedback methods that you can utilize to develop your own presentations to deliver at your institution
  • Diversity: improve the discussion of diversity in the biomedical community
  • Communication: build advising skills to common challenges our trainees face such as such as stress, anxiety, depression, stereotype threat, imposter phenomenon, and more
  • What works: a sharing session to see how other institutions have implemented concepts learned in 2016
