The University of Pittsburgh has a long-standing commitment to preparing graduate and professional students for successful careers, including those in the academic world.
Center for Doctoral and Postdoctoral Career Development
While academic units are the primary sources of career support for graduate and professional students, Pitt's Center for Doctoral and Postdoctoral Career Development leverages institutional resources to meet the common career-development needs of doctoral and postdoctoral trainees across all schools.
Office of Academic and Career Development
The Office of Academic Career Development provides students in Pitt's schools of the health sciences with tools, resources, and support for achieving their full potential as leaders in biomedical research, education, and clinical practice.
Pitt subscribes to Versatile PhD, which helps graduate students to identify and prepare for nonacademic careers.
