Harnessing the power of your graduate degree: academia, medicine and beyond

Tuesday, November 27, 2018 - 12:00pm to 3:30pm
Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute (209 Victoria Street) Allan Waters Auditorium

The CRICH U of T Chapter proudly presents an exciting day with keynote lectures and interactive workshops with distinguished scientists, leaders in academia and experienced mentors on Tuesday, November 27 at Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute (209 Victoria Street) Allan Waters Auditorium from 12-3:30pm! Talks, panel discussions and breakout rooms will feature Drs. Reinhart Reithmeier, John Marshall, Jane Batt, and Kati Szaszi. The aim of this event is to expose promising graduate trainees to the applicability of their critical thinking skills to multiple career avenues.

The 10,000 PhDs seminar was spearheaded by Dr. Reinhart Reithmeier - an award-winning lecturer and mentor in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Toronto. Most notably, his leadership was recognized in 2012 by his election to the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences.

You will have the opportunity to sign-up for the smaller scale breakout rooms on the day of the event (20-25 students per room), providing a unique opportunity to have a one-on-one discussion with the mentor of your choice. The following topics will be covered in the breakout rooms:

Room 1: Reinhart Reithmeier - How to network with scientific experts and leaders.
Room 2: John Marshall - How do I become the best mentor for my mentee?
Room 3: Jane Batt - The importance of women in science and engineering: determining if it is the right fit for you.
Room 4: Kati Szaszi & Andras Kapus - The difference in attaining a PhD in 2018 and years prior.

We will also have a raffle to raise funds for the Rotary Transition Centre of St. Michael's Hospital. Two winning tickets will have paid dinner with all the invited speakers on the night of Nov. 27th between 6:30-8:30 pm!
