IDP Lab for Graduate Students

Hello BME graduate students, be sure to check out the event below to help develop your individual development plan! Here’s the link for the IDP Lab.

When: 11:00 am to 1:00 pm, Thursday, June 30, 2016

Where: CIEMAS 3602 (Atrium, 3rd level, “fishbowl” room)

What: Individual Development Plans (IDPs) help you to examine your skills and interests, explore potential career paths, and create specific goals. For example, ScienceCareers offers the myIDP tool ( for STEM graduate students. How to use an IDP, though, is sometimes not clear. Stop by this informal IDP Lab to explore different tools and to start using them to guide your career. Stay for a few minutes or the entire time. Career Center counselors will be on hand to help you make sense of your results and set achievable goals.
This event is sponsored by the Duke Career Center. Questions? Contact Dr. Dave McDonald, Assistant Director for Graduate Student Services, for more information at
