An advanced degree in biomedical science is a prized asset to employers, both inside and outside academia. Although institutions are waking up to the need to introduce trainees to the career landscape early in their training, much of the onus for career development currently rests on your own shoulders. Melanie Sinche, author of Next Gen PhD, and Joshua Hall, host of the HelloPhD podcast will share their perspectives going through, and later shaping, graduate training within the biomedical community. This should be an empowering discussion about rethinking scientific training in the future—and present.
