Emerging Biomedical Professionals (EBPs) is a peer-led group with the goal of promoting career development resources for research trainees and providing service to the Georgia Cancer Center and the community.
EBPs include all Georgia Cancer Center trainees, including postdocs, graduate and medical students, post-graduate associates, clinical fellows and residents, international students, exchange scholars, and even junior faculty.
EBPs participate in most of the educational opportunities within the Georgia Cancer Center, including:
The Pathways to Success series is an informal, interactive opportunity to learn from the career experiences of successful biomedical professionals, who share insights and advice on career navigation, work-life balance, alternate training options, and other topics of choice. An EBP serves as a moderator to lead the discussion. Our speakers represent diverse professional areas, including:
The Professional Skills Development series provides seminars and workshops focused on skills needed as trainees develop their careers. Topics include:
Trainees’ Research in Progress (T-RIP) is a weekly seminar series where graduate students and postdocs present their ongoing research results and receive feedback from other researchers and their peers. T-RIP provides trainees with valuable speaking experiences early in their careers, in a safe, learning environment.
The EBP Writing Room is a quiet, private/semi-private space for Graduate Students, Postdoctoral Fellows, and Early Career Research Faculty to use on a temporary basis for manuscript preparation, grant preparation, and thesis preparation. The Writing Room (CN-2168) must be reserved in advance as outlined in the EBP Writing Room Policy. EBPs using the Writing Room must also abide by the rules set forth in the policy.
Academic institutions require, and at times reward, faculty members to serve their academic communities. To gain experience in service, the Georgia Cancer Center offers its trainees many opportunities to serve, including:
