The Vanderbilt Postdoctoral Association was formed in 1998 and has successfully united postdoctoral research fellows from the basic science as well as clinical departments.
We believe that there are many benefits to being involved in such an organization: ranging from the obvious social interactions, to providing opportunities to practice seminars, and to bring in speakers on career preparation. In addition, this provides a mechanism to have input into decision-making at the highest levels in the Medical Center.
The Postdoctoral Association meets on the first Tuesday of each month at Noon in 306 Light Hall unless otherwise specified Email meeting announcements will be sent to all postdocs on the postdoc listserve. If you have any items that you would like to add to the meeting agenda, or if you are interested in serving as a PDA officer, please contact Claudia Cottingham.
