Faculty Career Development Series

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


Topics are selected based on an annual needs assessment.

Example topics include:

  • How to Write an NIH K Award
  • 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. Many of our offerings are also broadcast live as webinars to allow for flexible viewing opportunities. Check out the calendar for specific upcoming event topics and locations.
