Career Development Office

The mission of the Career Development Office (CDO) at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus (CU Anschutz) is to help graduate students and postdoctoral fellows acquire the non-science skills and experiences they need to successfully transition in their careers, both inside and outside of academia. We strive to supplement the world-class research training at CU Anschutz with world-class "non-bench" training, making our alumni highly sought after employees in a myriad of professions.

The CDO serves as an informational resource for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and administrators. We encourage you to visit the website often to learn about all the professional and career development opportunities that we provide - the skills and experiences you gather now can be the keys to opening the doors to your future.

As part of our career development program, we feature workshops that were developed through an NIH Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BEST) award. In 2013, the NIH selected the Graduate School at the University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus as one of 17 universities nationwide to receive a BEST award. This award has enabled the development of unique career development opportunities in biomedical science training that increase the preparedness and employability of bioscience PhDs in the non-academic workforce, and we are excited to incorporate these opportunities into our programming.
