2013 Workshop Series

Graduate students and postdocs are encouraged to attend the Vollum Career Development Workshop Series. Led by OHSU faculty, these seminars provide helpful advice for young scientists—from finding a mentor to writing a scientific manuscript. This year's Career Development Workshop series will kick off on January 8, and take place every Tuesday from 4 to 5 p.m. in Vollum M1441 until mid-March

If you are at the West Campus or are otherwise unable to attend in-person, you can still watch the workshops from your computer via live stream. If you are interested in streaming any of these presentations, please contact funding@ohsu.edu.
