What is the MIND program?
The MIND Program is an eight month program of career development and exploration specifically developed for basic, life science graduate students and postdocs. The program begins with a three full days during Phase 1 of the program,, which will occur on Saturdays through October and December. During this coursework, trainees will develop the basic skills needed to investigate career options that are best suited to their skills, interests, and values. Through the academic year, trainees will work in Peer Teams, meeting twice per month, to explore various career options. Individual trainees will connect with professionals and UCSF alumni in a range of fields and jobs, to gather reliable and comprehensive information about their options. Trainees share this knowledge and experience with their peers, and document this in a knowledge base that will be used as a resource available to biomedical trainees nationwide.
