This two-day event features panel presentations and break out sessions with the scientists who have pursued a variety of careers after attaining their Ph.D. The panelists will discuss how their careers evolved and help you prepare for a career in the following areas:

  • Research
  • Administration
  • Teaching
  • Consulting
  • Writing
  • Program management
  • Regulatory affairs
  • Technology transfer
  • Law
  • Science policy
  • Clinical and forensic science
  • Defense

Our panelists hail from industry, government, academia, and private foundations. The Symposium is designed primarily for graduate students and post-docs, but all are welcome. There is no fee for Vanderbilt and Meharry registrants, but registration is requested because lunch will be provided for attendees of the break out sessions. Attendance at each break-out session is limited to 200 participants. Please note: Even if the break-out sessions are full, you can still attend the main Symposium presentations.

Mark your calendar and plan to attend this informative event! The Symposium will be held in 208 Light Hall and broadcast into 202 and 214 Light Hall.
