Session Description: Health scientists are employed in a variety of sectors including academia, industry, biotech, law, government and editorial services. While a MD/PhD or PhD provides a foundation in research that leads to many attractive career options, post-graduate training can vary among sectors. This session will feature a panel of successful scientists employed across these sectors sharing their insights and advice on whether a traditional academic postdoctoral fellowship is necessary and/or beneficial to trainees interested in their area and what additional training opportunities or steppingstones should be considered. This session will be of interest to undergraduates, graduate/medical students, postdoctoral fellows and anyone interested in graduate education.
