Description/Abstract

Undergraduate research can produce highly motivated, well-trained students. However, those same students may only have a limited understanding of their potential career options. To address this issue, the UCF Department of Molecular Biology and Microbiology developed a “Career Opportunities in the Biomedical Sciences” seminar series. The seminars are designed to impart career advice and to raise student awareness regarding the variety of available career paths. This presentation will give an overview of the seminar series and will consider seminar-related topics such as student interest, speaker availability, general organization, advertising, funding, and assessment. The talk is intended to provide audience members with a blue print for how to create a “Career Opportunities” seminar series for other disciplines and universities.
