The University of Toronto’s Centre for Vaccine Preventable Diseases (CVPD) at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health is hosting an in-person Trainee Session focused on PhD students. The session is supported by funding from Merck Canada.

Please join us on, Friday, September 16, 2022, from 12:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. EDT

This session will be focused on PhD students and will be centered around soft skills and career paths for graduate students

By the end of the session, trainees will:
• Understand how to communicate scientific information to a variety of lay audiences
• Learn how to write effective funding proposals
• Become familiar with different career paths for PhD graduates in scientific disciplines
• Develop a network of other University of Toronto trainees at a similar career stage
