The University of Pennsylvania Biomedical Postdoctoral Program (BPP) is piloting a new program designed to address the unique needs of BPP postdocs who are non-native speakers of English. The ability for postdocs to successfully communicate research in podium presentations, meetings, one-on-one interactions as well as in lab is essential for professional advancement. To support our BPP postdocs in attaining their career goals and to address their specific needs, we have sought the expertise of an English as a Second Language (ESL) professional to develop a pilot program. This intensive 5-week series of workshops (10 total), online tutorials and individualized coaching is designed to achieve noticeable results. The course will run from October 13, 2014 to November 13, 2014. Click here for additional details
