Yale Resources

Below are some of the main university resources for assisting students with both current training and future career development. 

Beginning in the spring of 2017, BBS Program and MD/PhD students have the opportunity to take a new course "Skill Development for Diverse Scientific Careers" (BBS550), which is generously supported by an administrative supplement to the Predoctoral Program in Cellular and Molecular Biology, T32GM007223, and the BBS. Yale faculty and personnel from local biotech and pharma companies discuss a variety of topics including entrepreneurship, the business of science, skills development, translational research, and more.

Office of Career Strategy

Career advising. CV and cover letter workshops. Networking opportunities. Career panel discussions. Job postings. And everything in between. GCS is a full-service career center for students and alumni of the Graduate School.

Graduate Writing Center

The Graduate Writing Center (GWC) helps graduate students become prolific and successful academic writers.

Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL)

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) not only trains students to become excellent lecturers, it also teaches students how to create presentations, develop new courses, write exams, and control classroom dynamics. Those interested in careers in academia greatly benefit from this type of training.

The Yale Career Network (Yale CN ) is a database of alumni who are interested in networking with you. This network will allow you to connect with other alumni to discuss career objectives and explore career interests.
