The Leadership Program


Vocational Counseling

Vocational counseling is an important aspect of the Leadership Program. The aim is to empower participating scholars to make informed decisions about graduate training and their careers. Several of the meetings are by necessity passive but others require student participation in a more active context. All emphasize the importance of diligent research in selecting training experiences and the individuals who will guide one's development as a research scientist or public health professional.
Counseling topics include:

  • An overview of science and public service careers for veterinary graduates
  • Careers in Industry
  • Internships and Residencies
  • Graduate Research Training
  • Translational Science
