Brown bag lunch session: Faculty position interviews
Are you going on the job market for a faculty position soon and would like to know what the interview is really like and how to prepare for it? The Office of Education will offer a brown bag lunch session with two of our senior fellows who recently completed several interviews for faculty positions at both research-intensive and teaching colleges and universities.
This is a great opportunity, in a small-group, informal forum, for you to hear firsthand what to expect during the interview process. We want you to walk away from the discussion with a sense of what search committees are interested in, the type of questions that are asked, tips for both phone and in-person interviews, what skills are most needed to be successful, and what you can do throughout your NIH training to be more prepared.
Space is limited to 25 people. If you would like to attend, please contact Yvette Pittman at Yvette.Pittman@nih.gov.

Choosing Your Medical Specialty
Building 31, Conference Room 2A48
“So, what kind of medicine do you want to do?” Whether you have been accepted in to medical school, are currently applying, or even just contemplating becoming a doctor, chances are that you have already heard this question countless times before. To help answer any questions you might have about how doctors decide on a specialty and what factors to consider in your own decision, we are hosting a panel session for you:
In this session, a panel of medical professionals from specialties including pediatrics, reproductive medicine, neurology, and emergency medicine will talk for 5-10 minutes about their careers and what factors influenced their final choice of specialty. A 20-minute Q&A session will follow where you will have the unique opportunity to have your most pressing questions answered by our diverse panel!
Space is limited to 25 fellows. If you would like to attend, please email Dr. Yvette Pittman at email@example.com. Also, if you would like our panelists to address specific questions/topics, please feel to include them in your RSVP and we will pass them on to the session’s moderator.
