    Join this Webinar to learn more about post baccalaureate (postbac) programs for recent college graduates in order to gain research and scientific experience after obtaining an undergraduate degree. Learn about types of postbac programs and how they can strengthen your application to PhD programs in the biomedical sciences.

    Description and Rationale

    Many post baccalaureate (postbac) programs are structured to provide recent college graduates who are planning to apply to PhD programs in the biomedical sciences an opportunity to spend one or two years performing full-time research at the different institutions. During this time, students have the opportunity to develop research skills and build strong scientific credentials that will assist them in applying to graduate school and pursuing a career in scientific research.

    In this Webinar we will discuss the basic structure of postbac programs, the application process, and who is eligible to apply. Speakers will provide information on three postbac programs in biomedical research and advice on applying to and succeeding in these programs and beyond.

    This Webinar is intended for senior undergraduate students or recent college graduates who seeking opportunities to build research skills and apply to biomedical PhD programs in the future.
