Professional Development

Currently the Professional Development Committee is working on several things.

Check the UIPDA calendar for upcoming professional development opportunities.

Events being planned include but are not limited to:
  • Alternative Career Seminar Series
  • Presentation Skills Workshop Series
  • Grant-Writing Workshop (How to write and revise)
  • Academic Career Seminar Series

Last academic year, we generated a resource database which we recently posted on the UIPDA website (click here). This academic year, we will try to invite some established scholars in both academy and industry areas to give talks regarding how to prepare for a successful career in each field. Current members of this committee are all from the College of Medicine and some will be leaving Iowa soon. We encourage more people, especially those outside of CCOM, to join.

If you have any questions about the Professional Development Committee, please contact Steven Pennington,
