Important Free Training Opportunity – Developing Your Resilience

The National Institutes of Health Office of Intramural Training & Education (NIH/OITE) is opening up most of its upcoming programming to trainees nationwide. 

We especially wanted to draw to your attention the following series of six webinars and related discussions, which will focus on helping students and postdocs in the sciences to develop the resilience needed to thrive in high-knowledge, research intensive environments. The discussion groups will be organized by educational level, to bring you together with others who are likely to be experiencing similar educational, work, and life stressors. 

Register using the links below. The related discussion groups will be held each Monday and Tuesday one week following the webinar. All webinars begin at 11 a.m. and are one to two hours long.
