PhD Career Outcomes

Career data are collected at the time the degree was awarded (initial position), one, five, and ten years after graduation using web searches and contact with graduate programs and mentors. MD/PhD students are included in the year in which they finish their PhDs, and their initial positions are “Further training” as they return to medical school.

Beginning in 2018, Grad Studies adopted the Unified Career Outcomes Taxonomy (UCOT) v.2018 described in Stayart et.al (2018). “Applying Inter-rater Reliability to Improve Consistency in Classifying PhD Career Outcomes.”
