For Postdoctoral Trainees
As a doctoral student, you most likely had little or no exposure to the types of structured career or professional development courses that are now being provided to many current doctoral students. Whereas, the noncredit professional development workshops presently provided for postdoctoral trainees at the University of Pittsburgh serve as valuable overviews, these programs cannot provide the depth and scope of content provided within graduate-level, professionally-related coursework.
Previously, non-degree seeking students could only enroll in graduate credit courses by special permission or on a space available basis. Priority registration has always been afforded to degree-seeking students so seats in graduate credit professional development courses very seldom became available to postdocs who were not seeking an additional degree…until now.
