Choosing a mentor is a vital first step in a PhD student’s journey toward becoming an independent researcher. The 32 students who joined the UF College of Medicine Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences in the fall took that step in August, selecting a mentor and a research concentration. The milestone was marked with an inaugural Mentor-Match Celebration, held Aug. 18 in the Biomedical Sciences Building’s Broad-Bussel Atrium.
“The things that make our lives joyful are the interactions we have with one another,” said UF College of Medicine Dean Michael L. Good, MD. “This graduate program is one place where team relationships will be rich and meaningful.”
