Management Training for Scientists

(a pre-conference event at the SACNAS meeting)

Management of people and resources is a key component to being successful as you move forward in your career. Staff from the NIH Office of Intramural Training & Education (OITE) have developed an introductory course to give PhD-level scientists and senior-level graduate students an overview of common management concepts that are not often taught in a research environment. The topics covered will be applicable to all sectors (academics, industry, non-profits, government, etc.).  While best to attend the whole day, participants can come for the morning or afternoon sessions as a stand-alone topic.

October 28, 2015 – National Harbor

9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
