The Academic Career Path


The UC San Diego Health Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) held its 11th annual Summer Internship (Virtual) Symposium in August 2021. I gave a talk titled The Academic Career Path, in which I provided a general overview of the career path from undergraduate education all the way through obtaining a faculty position (e.g. Bachelor’s, Ph.D., post-doc, faculty), and I provided general recommendations for opportunities to take advantage of at each stage of the path.
