Today’s researchers, scientists, and academics face an increasingly competitive world. This is true not only in their fields of study, but in the areas of professional presentations, university teaching, publishing, inter-disciplinary collaboration, and fellowship and grant writing. Indeed, many leading institutions view these communication abilities as prerequisites for career advancement. This is why UAB’s Professional Development Program offers ongoing support for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and visiting scholars who want to take advantage of the school’s resources to enhance their skills. Under the direction of Dr. Kellie Carter, the program offers semester-long credit courses as well as day-long workshops in a variety of areas, such as
