CLIMB is a professional development program designed to mentor PhD and masters students and introduce them to the skills they will need as professional scientists. It is a one-year program for masters students and a two-year program for PhD students.
The CLIMB program is a series of workshops for masters students (CLIMB Pathways) or PhD students (CLIMB-HI) that run during the fall and spring semesters. Each series has one hour-long workshop per week or less and is a mix of lecture and discussion. Workshops are fully virtual.
The introductory series for both masters and PhD cover topics like choosing a mentor, developing graduate level time management strategies and maximizing study habits.
Masters workshops expand into topics of professional goal setting, career planning and networking to maximize the impact of 2-year progams.
PhD workshops expand into topics of scientific communication and developing resilience for the long haul in multi-year science programs. Year two covers scientific project proposal writing for qualifying exams and fellowship applications.
