The goal of this workshop is to provide you with an understanding of how to craft your graduate school admissions materials and provide examples of what will make you a competitive candidate in the eyes of graduate school admissions committee members. The second goal of this workshop is to provide you with an understanding of how science is generally funded, how to seek out these funding opportunities and how to effectively communicate your science in this format
This class will provide a general overview of 3D printing and its use in the research setting. You will learn the fundamentals of what is a 3D model and what makes a 3D model suitable for a 3D printer. You will also learn about how we use 3D printing and other new technologies in labs in our department. The 2-hour session will combine a short introduction of the basic concepts together with interactive activities and a DIY project.
This two-part series will provide a rudimentary introduction to computer programming. You will leave with some basic building blocks to help you start coding. Hopefully, you will leave thinking about the infinite number of ways you might put your coding skills to good use in scientific research, from data collection to analysis and beyond. Both sessions will include several brief mini-lectures, demonstrations, and some interactive, hands-on activities. No coding experience will be necessary! NOTE: This agenda is flexible and will be adapted based on the needs and interests of the class and available resources.
Session 1: Provide an overview of the thought process in designing a clinical study; Session 2: Familiarize students with the components of a clinical research protocol; Session 3: Provide students with fundamental information of processes involved in clinical research.
This workshop will provide you with an opportunity to discuss the ins and outs of grad and medical schools. You will have an informal discussion with the PhD students from our department and be guided through the steps for preparing your application for Med and Grad School including personal statements, resumes, and letters of recommendation.
Your instructors will guide you through the process of building scientific graphics for oral communication, how to organize a poster for a conference and how to create an efficient PowerPoint for oral presentation. This workshop will also help you build your poster for the final summer presentation of your data.
