Impact Challenge Workshops

There are many ways to share, promote, and discuss your scientific interests and research, especially online. It can be tough to know where to start!

The OHSU Library, in collaboration with the Career & Professional Development Center and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, will be hosting a monthly series of workshops designed to help students, early career researchers, and faculty navigate and implement strategies and tools for building a professional network and promoting their work.

The full series is described below. The workshops are held on the last Thursday of each month from 4:00 to 5:30 PM and are open to all OHSU students, postdocs, faculty, and staff. Light refreshments will be provided.
