Implementation – What to Change and How to Change It?
Much has been said and written in the last 20 years about revising the models for graduate and postdoctoral education in the biosciences. Last year, a meeting of 250 graduate educators and other interested parties convened in Ann Arbor to provide input on these and other models, and generate additional ideas. Next year, the University of Colorado and the University of Michigan will co-host a follow-up meeting to discuss implementation of new models, inviting participation of up to 500 stakeholders from academia, the private sector, federal agencies, and private foundations.
