The UCSF Office of Career and Professional Development's (OCPD) mission is to teach health professional students and postdoctoral scholars the professional skills required for career success. To that end, the OCPD offers a slate of programs, services, grant-funded initiatives and resources tailored to biomedical trainees.
Our approach is to collaborate with stakeholders across the university to design and implement evidenced-based interventions that develop key competencies in the areas of self assessment, career exploration, job search strategies and professional success skills. OCPD's vision is for every student and postdoc to leave UCSF with the knowledge, skills and confidence required to succeed.
OCPD offers programs, 1:1 career counseling, and online resources. We pair and 'breadcrumb' programs to lead students/postdocs to the next event (e.g., have an interactive CV workshop with short follow up 20-minute review appointments, or publicize an upcoming interviewing workshop at a cover letter workshop, etc.); built out interactive workshops to help teach students and postdocs how to organize competitive applications and align their definition of a good career decision with the options they're exploring. Finally, we co-sponsor and cross publicize registered campus organizations and fellow department career and professional development efforts across campus.
