Stepping Out of the Lab: Opportunities for Graduate Student Internships in Toxicology

Internships within industry, government, and nonprofit organizations provide graduate students unique appreciation of the day-to-day activities of toxicologists and paths for success in these sectors. Such opportunities can help students establish their professional network, build confidence in career choices, and ultimately better prepare for transitioning into these sectors upon graduation. The goal of this webinar is to bring together the various stakeholders—graduate students, faculty, and those hosting interns—to discuss best practices for developing internships, and strategies for increasing the number of available internships, as well as improving awareness and access to available internships.
