Career guidance evolves into a strength for Emory's PhD programs

GDBBS Division Director, Dr. Keith Wilkinson, was recently interviewed by about GDBBS initiatives to provide career guidance, such as the BEST Program. BEST is an NIH funded program entitled "Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training" that promotes career exploration and professional development with the goal of empowering trainees to make informed career decisions and achieve their career goals: "It exposes a cohort of 30-50 students and postdoctoral fellows per year to the skills needed in these careers and provides opportunities to hone these skills. Workshops, informational interviews, internships and career mentors help the student to decide if this is a career that interests them."
