Career and Professional Development

This page was last updated Aug. 7, 2023

The Career and Professional Development Committee’s mission is to increase awareness of non-clinical careers in healthcare and connect students to alumni/professionals in these fields.

2022-2023 Projects

  • Annual Health Policy Case Competition: The committee is central in planning a health policy case competition in partnership with the Duke-Margolis Center and DCC. We hope to garner the participation of teams from other schools in the Triangle and across the country.
  • Health Policy Passport: We created a mentorship program between graduate students in health policy fields and undergraduates. We worked with Duke-Margolis and other networks to find mentors, reaching out to undergraduates to determine interest in the program, matching mentors to students based on interest, and determining deliverables from the program. Read more about the program on our designated passport page.

Potential & Past Projects

  • Career Guidebook: A collaborative effort to highlight educational and career pathways in health policy, available here.
