Professional Life

GMS is dedicated to the professional development, career exploration, and mentorship of our master’s and doctoral students, as well as postdoctoral trainees. We aim to meet the diverse needs of our trainees by developing their skills in critical thinking, communication, leadership,  bioethics, intellectual property as well as enhancing their professional and career development.

To meet these needs we offer our students, trainees, and fellows workshops and seminars on various topics related to their professional development and career exploration. Our efforts include personalized mentorship, supportive grant writing training, networking opportunities, site visits to local biomedical companies, and internship information. To ensure our programming is informed by market needs and we work closely with industry partners to align our course of study with actual industry demands, ensuring you’re trained for both jobs that are open now and future careers that might not even exist today.

Our goal is to assure that our MS, PhDs, MD/PhDs, and post-doctoral fellows are prepared for successful careers in academia, industry, the public sector,  local or federal government, and various other opportunities after BU. Learn more about our professional development programs and job offerings.
