Career & Professional Development

It is an exciting time to be a part of the Office of Biomedical Graduate Education (OBGE)!  We are thrilled to announce we are in the process of re-imagining the means by which biomedical PhD students engage with their career development.  The program we are building, in partnership with our students, faculty, alumni and the wider Duke community, promises a personalized, integrated, hands-on approach to professional development and the career search.  As we continue through this process, we welcome your questions, concerns, thoughts and insights.  This site will be continuously updated as we finalize program plans.  In the meantime, please be on the lookout for our blog and the inaugural OBGE Graduate and Professional Development Program newsletter later this month.  

If you require immediate assistance or have questions, please contact Heather Nickel, OBGE Senior Career Specialist, at
