Expand Your Education

myCHOICE Mini-Courses


The goal of myCHOICE Education programming is to help you develop specialized skills and knowledge through mini-courses and workshops. Designed and adapted for doctoral and post-doctoral trainees in fields relevant to the biological sciences, our education offerings range from five to fifteen hours in length and are generally held in the evenings or spanning consecutive weekends to minimize the disruption for myCHOICE Trainees’ research activities.

Upcoming Mini-Courses

Winter 2018

Because of your program I got hired by Museum of Science and Industry after the Alan Alda communications workshop, the writing internship landed me a part time job, and the Story Circles communications workshop landed me a second part time job. My career is in transition but the skills that I picked up from myCHOICE is actually getting me a step closer to my ideal science communication and outreach job.
