The BEST Program at Wayne State is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to assist doctoral trainees in exploring multiple career opportunities, not just those affiliated with university research settings. WSU is one of 17 institutions nationwide to receive a BEST grant. BEST seeks to transform graduate education so that nonacademic careers are viewed as positive outcomes, neither "alternative" nor "second-best."

4:00-6:00 p.m.
Where: School of Medicine's Margherio Family Conference Center, located in Scott Hall
540 E. Canfield

Orientation Session

Wayne State invites you to explore career options outside of academia with the BEST (Broadening Experiences in Training) program as they kick off the year with an Orientation Session from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sept. 15, 2015, in the School of Medicine's Margherio Family Conference Center, located in Scott Hall. 

Dean of the Graduate School, Dr. Ambika Mathur, and new Director of the Office of Graduate Career Services, Carmen Gamlin, will talk about upcoming activities and services designed to help you uncover potential career options and connect with employers. You'll also have the opportunity to ask questions and to speak with some of your doctoral peers who already have taken advantage of BEST.

Additionally, you are invited to attend our Phase I (panel discussions) from 4 to 6 p.m. daily throughout the workweek of Sept. 21-25, 2015, in Margherio. Each afternoon session will be devoted to a different career track (undergraduate teaching, business/industry, law, communication, government). 

You can register for both Orientation and Phase I via Symplicity, which is linked to below. 

Please contact Heidi Kenaga, BEST program coordinator, at or 313-577-5499 with questions.
