Professional Development Resources

Please take advantage of the rich offerings that GMS provides through its Office of Professional Development and Postdoctoral Affairs.  We will also post on this page any additional GPN related materials to help you develop essential tools for a productive career in the field of neuroscience.

We encourage all of you to create your own independent development plan (IDP) starting with the resources offered through the MyIDP Science Careers website and to revisit this IDP on your own and with your mentor(s) regularly throughout your graduate career.  An annual evaluation of whether you are on target will enable you to monitor changes in your career trajectory as you develop and the opportunity to identify new opportunities for professional growth that will put you in the best position for reaching your goals after your PhD defense.
