Panel Discussion: Establishing Industry Experiences During Graduate School

Timeslot: Friday, April 5, 2019 - 10:30am to 12:30pm
Track: Career Catalysis
Room: Yakima 2


Graduate programs offer students rigorous scientific training in an academic setting, but rarely provide the opportunity to explore career paths in industry. In our proposed session, we seek to disseminate best practices for establishing a training program at a university where graduate students are able to gain industry experience during their academic training. We will host professors that have successfully established training programs at their universities, as well as PhD trainees that have completed such programs, to discuss the benefits and potential drawbacks of incorporating industry experience during PhD training. This session is being proposed by the Young Scientist Group and would be included in the Career Catalysis Track


Abstracts will be available for download on April 3, 2019.
