182. How to Choose A Rotation Lab and Advisor

Lab rotations are a pretty sweet deal ? you get the chance to work in a lab for a few weeks to see how it fits. Do you like the people? The project? The advisor? If not, try another lab and see if that one is a better fit. But at the end of 3-4 [?]

181. Build Skills Before Grad School with a Postbac

A lot of aspiring trainees are ?taking a gap year? before applying to graduate school. Typically, they use that time to build skills and make connections that will bolster their applications. This postbaccalaureate, or ?postbac?, experience can vary pretty widely ? from a course-heavy Master?s degree to a research-focused industry internship. There are also a [?]

For some students, graduate schools is a foregone conclusion. Perhaps they?ve wanted to ?be a scientist? since they were nine, and along the way, they learned that a PhD is a stepping stone on that path. Or perhaps they knew their career prospects with a Bachelor?s degree were thin, so they new an advanced degree [?]

There are many paths to a PhD. In the humanities, it?s common to earn a Master?s degree first (or so we?re told?)

Sometimes, your humble HelloPhD hosts forget how narrow our experience has been in graduate education. We?re both biomedical PhDs, and while we trained in different departments, there was a significant amount of overlap. For us, a PhD meant classes, comprehensive exams, rotations, lab meetings, experiments, seminars, and so on. While those experiences were common across [?]

If you?re a grad student who hasn?t thought about leaving your PhD program at least once, you might not have a pulse.
