Career Development Plan (IDP)
The Career Development Plan (CDP), also referred to as Individual Development Plan (IDP), is intended for students and PI’s to develop together during the first year in the lab, then update annually. The updated Plan should be shared with your Advisory Committee prior to one of the biannual meetings for discussion at the meeting. The completed Career Development Plan should be submitted to your chosen degree-granting program.
