The Academic Training team meets regularly with mentors to discuss the training needs of their research staff, and provides on-demand career counseling for researchers-in-training. If you'd like to schedule a consultation or a one-on-one career counseling session for your staff member, please contact us.

The Office of Academic Training and Outreach Programs sponsors, develops and administers a number of training programs for non-faculty CHOP Researchers. Learn more about programming available to the community of researchers-in-training:

  • Postdoctoral Fellows
  • Physician Fellows
  • CHOP-Based Graduate Students
  • Research Staff
  • Postdocs and physician researchers supported by T32 or F32 NIH NRSA Training Grants, also known as Training Grant Fellows, are supported by this office and others across the Research Institute.

The Office of Academic Training and Outreach Programs serves as the institution's postdoctoral affairs office, providing a full administrative and support infrastructure for CHOP postdocs. Services include small group orientations/welcome session, administration and tracking of annual reviews, regular salary evaluation, and exit and termination support, among others.
