The Committee for Career Development (CCD) is an organization of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at the University of Texas Medical Branch. We are here to serve and promote the success of all students and postdocs at utmbHealth by organizing seminars and workshops in different areas, which include teaching and grant writing skills, negotiating and interviewing skills, CV and resume workshops, and other skills sets required for a successful professional career.
The goal of the CCD is to expose students and postdocs to career opportunities and help them acquire the skills needed to further their professional lives.The CCD has been in existence since 1996.
