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
- Human Resources
- Medical Affairs
- Medical Writing
- Patent Law
- Product Management
- Project Management
- Research and Development (R&D)
- Regulatory Affairs
- 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.
In the event of existing or projected weather conditions or other emergency/disaster situations, GMS may cancel classes. Cancellation of GMS classes will be communicated by posting the cancellation announcement on the GMS website and/or by the individual course manager. This may be independent of other closings throughout the medical campus.
If the medical campus is closed for the day, then no GMS classes will be held. Note that Boston University’s Charles River Campus may be closed while the Boston University School of Medicine remains open, in which classes will be held unless otherwise noted. Announcements and information regarding all Boston University closings or delayed openings will be made on local radio and television stations, as well as the GMS website.
The Master of Arts in Medical Sciences is hosting an Open House on Friday, January 17, 2014 from 3-6PM at Boston University School of Medicine, Room L-211.
The Master of Arts in Medical Sciences (MAMS) Program introduces students to a broad range of topics in the medical sciences while strengthening their academic credentials for admission to medical and other professional schools. It is a 32-credit program, with a required thesis, that can be completed in one or two calendar years. All coursework is taken in the first year but many student elect to use the second year to gain valuable research and volunteer experience at Boston University School of Medicine, Boston Medical Center or off-campus.
