Interest Groups

Four students discuss in a small group in a classroom setting.

Students meet for peer discussions on academic and professional topics. Interest groups are organized and led by a small committee of trainee volunteers. Past meetings have included topics such as:

  • Research in Progress: Trainees present their current or proposed research
  • Internships: Logistics of identifying and securing internships
  • Individual Development Plans: Creating and using IDPs to further professional goals
  • Meet a Researcher: trainees explore research and other topics with a senior scientist
