Professional Development Committee

Chair: Nickolas Dasher, PhD


  • To provide guidance, information, and support to the residents during the internship year.
  • Example activities include: a Postdoctoral Panel, Career Fair, opportunities to practice job talks or interviewing, feedback on CV’s or cover letters, and discussion about licensure or board certification.

Resident Participation

At least two residents serve on the committee each year, ideally, at least one resident from each track. They provide a crucial link to the resident class. The resident representatives can play a very active role in shaping the focus of the committee’s work for the year.
