The Yale Cooperative Center of Excellence in Hematology (YCCEH) is sponsoring a virtual Professional Development Course for PhD and MD/PhD students pursuing research in the field of non-malignant hematology. This course is designed to enhance scientific career development by providing instruction in the areas of communication, collaboration, and self-organization. The course, which will be presented by HFP Consulting, will consist of six 3.5 hours sessions in April 2022 (topics shown below). Participation in this course will foster interactions between trainees in the non-malignant hematology field.
Participants will be selected from students at institutions in the NIDDK-funded Cooperative Centers of Excellence in Hematology (CCEH) network as well as other institutions. Trainees from backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented in the field of non-malignant hematology are encouraged to apply. Selected participants will be expected to attend all six sessions.
Application Process: Applicants must (1) complete the attached application and (2) provide a current CV. The application must be signed by the graduate student applicant and the student's dissertation advisor. Trainees from CCEH-institutions (i.e., Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, Fred Hutchison Cancer Research Center, Indiana University, University of Utah, Yale School of Medicine) should submit their application materials following instructions provided by their local CCEH. Trainees from outside the CCEH network should email their application to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Selection Process: A total of 16 trainees will be selected to participate. Trainees from CCEH-institutions will be selected through their local CCEH. Applications from trainees from outside the CCEH network will be reviewed by YCCEH leadership.
