Career Development Series

The ITHS Career Development Series consist of monthly lectures and workshops designed to provide early stage investigators with tools, a forum for discussion, and learning opportunities to help advance their careers.

Topics

Topics are selected based on an annual needs assessment.

Example topics include:

  • Making the Most of your Mentor Relationship
  • Mastering Public Speaking as a Researcher
  • Communicating your Findings Visually
  • What really happens in an NIH Study Review

Where can I find a CDS event?

ITHS partners with several UW campus and WWAMI regional partners to ensure we reach and engage the translational workforce with each series. CDS events occur across the main UW campus, in the UW Medicine South Lake Union building, and are often captured on video and edited for online distribution to our regional partners. Check out the calendar for specific upcoming event topics and locations.
