Description

BEST: Implementing Career Development Activities for Biomedical Research Trainees provides an instructional guide for institutions wanting to create, supplement or improve their career and professional development offerings. Each chapter provides an exclusive perspective from an administrator from the 17 Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BEST) institutions. The book can aid institutions train graduate students in a variety of careers through the experiences of these 17 unique university graduate training programs by teaching faculty and staff on how to create and implement career development programing for biomedical research graduate students and postdocs, highlighting the effectiveness of the offerings, demonstrating that creating a program from scratch is doable and requires a few dedicated faculty and staff and surprisingly little monetary support, and informing faculty and staff how to get institutional buy-in so they are willing to support a career and professional development program. This is a must-have for graduate school deans, faculty, and staff who want to implement and institutionalize career development programing at their institutions as well as graduate students and postdocs that want to help themselves in lieu of specific programming.
