PART 1: Understanding the Value of Rotations and Setting Your Goals

A primary goal of the first year of graduate school is to identify a dissertation laboratory. Lab rotations are a major mechanism to guide students in this process. Students are currently having to navigate rotations that are partially or wholly virtual due to COVID-19 and restrictions on in-person laboratory activities. This interactive workshop will provide students strategies to maximally leverage both in-person and virtual lab rotation experiences to identify a training environment for...
