Career Advisors

 

A Career Advisor is assigned when the student accepts a position in the MSTP to assist with choosing a rotation laboratory, and to address any questions about the MSTP, Graduate Programs, and transitions.  The Career Advisor meets with the student upon matriculation into the MSTP and then meets with the advisee at least biannually to discuss student progress, plans, and any concerns.  Listed below are the current Career Advisors for academic year 2016-17.
