The Emory-Georgia Tech Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BEST) Program

PhD programs in biomedical science have traditionally been structured to prepare students for careers in research-intensive, tenure-track academic settings.

The NIH, with a broad mission to prepare the future biomedical workforce, has developed the Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BEST) awards specifically to address the disparity between graduate student and post-doctoral training in the biomedical sciences and actual workforce outcomes.
