At CHRIM, we recognize the vital importance of fostering the professional development and mentorship of the next generation of child health researchers. The institute is affiliated with the University of Manitoba, where many of our trainees are registered as students.
To support all trainees as they transition from student life to life after graduation, we offer professional development resources led by our Trainee Career Development Group.
The Trainee Career Development Group provides several development opportunities throughout the year including workshops, courses, and networking events that support graduate students on their path to a meaningful career.
Areas of career development include:
- Funding Opportunities and Writing Development
- Access to Expert Panels (journal editors, researchers, industry professionals)
- Resume Writing
- Interview Skill Development
- Oral Presentations
The CHRIM Trainee Career Development Group, along with the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, is proud to announce a new award sponsored by Emergent Biosolutions. This award will provide professional development to trainees, up to a max of $500. Click here to see examples of eligible and ineligible events for this award.
