Professional Development

One of the top missions of the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPA) is to enhance the training experience of Weill Cornell Medical College postdocs and assist them in gaining the full range of skills needed to launch successful careers. The OPA is dedicated to helping postdocs make the most of this invaluable period of training.

The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs offers Career Development programs for postdocs periodically throughout the year. Examples of previous programs include CV Writing, Interviewing Skills, Navigating Your Career Path, Mentoring and Being Mentored, Individual Development Plans and Publishing. For a schedule of upcoming programs, please see our Calendar of Events.
