The Program in Graduate Education (PGE) at Harvard Medical School (HMS) is pleased to host this session showcasing the growing array of post-docs available for life sciences trainees looking for training in the areas of the public, non-profit and private sectors. These post-docs prepare life scientists trainees for careers including bioethics, science policy, science communication, mass media, clinical affairs and medical affairs.
This session will feature professionals who are hiring managers, mentors or past participants in these "non-traditional post-docs". Attendees will have the chance to learn about the process of applying to these post-doctoral fellowships (including posted and upcoming openings), the value of these training programs, what to expect from these experiences, and the career trajectories of their alumni.
