Summary Description

The vision of the Office of Career and Professional Development (OCPD) is for every student and postdoctoral scholar to leave UCSF with the information, skills and confidence required for career success. To that end, our mission is to collaborate with the UCSF community to teach students and postdoctoral scholars the essential knowledge and professional skills to navigate their careers. The OCPD offers tailored workshops, courses, 1:1 counseling and online resources around every stage of career development. This includes topics such as self-reflection and professional identity; effective career exploration and decision making; strategic positioning and the competitive pursuit of internship, employment, postdoc, residency and fellowship opportunities; and key professional skills.
