Prospective PhD Applicants

Upcoming short presentations will describe features of PhD training, alumni careers, and detailed logistics of the application process.

Throughout the year the PhD Outreach Committee provides workshops and panels to help demystify the PhD Program application process and the PhD training experience. Participants include PhD Program Directors and Administrators, and may also include current students. After the presentations, the panelists address questions from the audience and are often available for one-on-one interactions as well.

These sessions are organized by the PhD Outreach Committee of the AAMC's GREAT Group, and are usually delivered in association with national conferences and graduate fairs.
