DMS PATHS is an enrichment program for graduate students to identify which careers they hope to pursue and to gain relevant experience in these areas. Each PATH has an associated student group, and in most cases these are open to both PhD and Masters students.
A more in-depth description from the PATHS website is below: Many of our students are now pursuing diverse tracks including biotechnology/pharmaceuticals, patent law, consulting, science plicy, and education. To support our students’ aspirations, we have established an enrichment program, termed “Paths”. The basic idea is that students with a common interest will come together in groups to participate in a variety of activities that will serve to prepare and position them for careers in these paths. our current Paths are: Biotech, Consulting, Patent Law, Science Writing & Publishing, Education, and Science Policy. The Paths are student-directed and each path will have associated with it a student group or club, a web page, representation from the Office of Career Services, a faculty advisor, alumni as well as other external mentors, networking events, and the opportunity for internships.
Visit the PATHS website for more information on each track and associated student groups.
