The Atlanta BEST Program

The BEST program aims to better prepare pre-doctoral and postdoctoral scientists for the breadth of possible careers in the biomedical research workforce and to establish a network, share, evaluate and disseminate widely best practices for the community.

About the Program

BEST trainees will formally participate in the program for two years but remain affiliated for their entire training period. Fifty trainees, a combination of graduate students and postdocs, will be admitted each year, with approximately half from Emory and half from Georgia Tech.  

The first year is designed to give each trainee broad exposure to a variety of career paths beyond the academy, while also providing leadership training. The second year will involve immersion into one or at most two specific tracks representing focused career paths, culminating in an internship opportunity.
