Career Development Retreat
The PSTP Career Development Retreat is an annual event including a grant writing workshop, and Q&A forums where physician scientists on faculty provide guidance for identifying mentors and research directions, identifying funding opportunities, obtaining and negotiating academic jobs, staffing and managing a research lab, and reviewing and preparing manuscripts. Our 2017 retreat was held at The West Reading Room of the Welch Library, on March 26.
The Lunch and Lecture Series
The Lunch and Lecture Series will invite Scholars to attend named lectureships hosted by Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences Departments in areas of their interest. Faculty members from the Department will have lunch with our group to discuss the contributions of the lecturer. Journal articles will be selected for in-depth review and discussion, and related work ongoing at JHUSOM will be described for the physician-scientists. The group will then attend the lecture.
The Directed Discussion Series
The Directed Discussion Series will invite Scholars to discussions with Professors and Directors of Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences Departments and Centers. Faculty will set discussion topic(s) and provide reading material in advance. These may include reviewing scientific advances where physician-scientists may be uniquely positioned to contribute, or discussing other trending fields.
