PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
myIDP
This website will walk you through developing an individual development plan (IDP), which will help you explore career possibilities and set goals to follow the career path that fits you best. You will find exercises to help you examine your skills, interests, and values; a list of 20 scientific career paths with a prediction of which ones best fit your skills and interests; a tool for setting strategic goals for the coming year with optional reminders to keep you on track; and articles and resources to guide you through the process. Be aware that NIH annual progress reports received on/after October 1, 2014, must include a section to describe how individual development plans (IDPs) are used to identify and promote the career goals of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers associated with the award. As a result, reviewing your IDP annually with a faculty mentor is an important part of your graduate training.
