Additional Comments: There are two objectives of the biennial Biomedical Science Careers Student Conference. The primary objective is to provide postdoctoral fellows; medical, dental, graduate, college and community college students; post-baccalaureates; and high school seniors and juniors with an opportunity to network with advisors/role models from the basic and clinical sciences, medicine, public health, academia, and the biopharmaceutical industry. These advisors/role models encourage students to complete advanced studies and provide concrete advice and information on available resources, professional opportunities, and career paths in biomedical and other science-related fields. The second objective is to enable students to meet, inspire, and network with one another.
