Explore Diverse Careers in Science: Speed Networking Event 4/22

February 5th, 2014 in General News

Science is a booming, vibrant industry in the city of Boston. Between the universities, research institutions and biotechnology companies that pepper the city blocks, it isn’t any wonder why Boston is sometimes referred to as the “Athens of America”. While a typical career path may pursue the direction of academic research, there are also many alternative careers that go beyond the bench.

In an effort to bring these alternative careers in science to the forefront, the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) in conjunction with the BUSM Office of Professional Development and Postdoctoral Affairs (OPDPA), the BUSM Division of Graduate Medical Sciences (GMS) and the Cambridge Science Festival, is hosting a speed networking event Alternative Careers in Science. This event, open to the BUMC community, will provide the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of career paths across the STEM fields from mid to late-career professionals in a fun, low-pressure environment.

This two-and-a-half hour event will be held in a speed networking fashion where participants will interact with more than 20 experienced panelists who will give insight into their chosen professions. The event will open and conclude with a half hour of networking and light refreshments. There will be five 15-minute sessions during which participants can learn about a different field of expertise, including:

  • Academia and Teaching
  • Business Development
  • Competitive Intelligence
  • Consulting, Engineering
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Human Resources
  • Medical Affairs
  • Medical Writing
  • Non-Profit
  • Patent Law
  • Product Management
  • Project Management
  • Research and Development (R&D)
  • Regulatory Affairs
  • Sales
  • Science Policy
  • Social Enterprise
  • Technology Transfer

Alternative Careers in Science will take place on Tuesday, April 22 from 6:30-9 p.m. in the BUSM Instructional Building, 14th Floor, Hiebert Lounge. A light dinner will be provided. Register for the event here.

Medical Campus Flu Clinics

October 11th, 2013 in General News

There will be joint MED/GMS/SDM/SPH flu clinics at the medical campus so all students on the medical campus will have an opportunity to get a flu shot. If your program and/or courses require working with patients or spending any time in the hospitals or clinics then you must obtain a sticker to be placed on your BU ID after the flu shot.  If you do not comply you will NOT be permitted in these areas unless you wear a mask.
Following are dates, times and locations.

  • Nov 4th  from 11:00 am- 3:00 pm  in Hiebert Lounge

  • Nov. 7th from  4:00 pm  -7:00 pm in  Hiebert Lounge

  • Nov 14th   7:30 am-12:00 pm in   Hiebert Lounge

  • Nov 18th from 10:00 am -1:50 pm  in  Rooms  L212/L214

 

    Please note the following:

    CHARGES

    • Flu shot is covered 100% for the students who have BU’s Aetna Student Health Insurance.
    • Students with other health insurances will be charged $30 that will be placed on the student’s account.  Student Health Services (SHS) will provide a receipt to submit to their insurance for repayment.

    STICKERS

    • All students that attend these clinics will have a sticker applied to their ID regardless of which school or program they are in.
    • Students that attend a clinic on the CRC campus or at SHS will need to self-identify that they are in need of a sticker. We will then be able to apply the sticker at that time.
    • Students that choose to get a flu shot outside of clinics offered by SHS will need to provide a medical record showing that they received the vaccine. This medical record will need to be turned in to SHS.
      • This can either be walked in to SHS, mailed in, faxed in (617-353-3557), or the student can present this information at one of our clinics. PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL THIS INFORMATION – it is protected health information.
      • Once documented, you can check with Dr. Hee-Young Park at the GMS office to obtain a sticker.
