PhD Application Bootcamp, Emory University Gangarosa Department of Environmental Health

Category : News/Events

This workshop was created to help demystify the PhD application process by helping students develop their strongest application as well as prepare them for PhD interviews and assist with navigating the decision-making process of which program to attend.

In the last 2 years, 15+ students have participated with a 93% success rate for student placement in programs at Harvard, Princeton, University of Washington, Emory, and others.

This program is free of charge and open to all students interested in applying to a PhD program, regardless of discipline, program of interest, and academic institution. In other words, this is not a pipeline program to the Environmental Health Sciences program or Emory. The focus of this program is to ensure students are putting their best foot forward!


Session II: Navigating a PhD
When: October 13; 6:00p Where: Virtual (Zoom)

Session III: Writing your personal statement, resume, letters of recommendation When: October 27, 6:00p Where: Virtual (Zoom)

Session IV: Broadening the career path in PhD training When: November 17; 6:00p Where: Virtual (Zoom)

Why have a bootcamp?

Applying to graduate school can be equal parts exciting and stressful. Our goal with a PhD application bootcamp is to take some of the mystery and anxiety out of the process, so that students can focus on developing their strongest graduate application.

What will you accomplish?

The PhD Application Bootcamp is designed to help students complete each part of the application process, starting with deciding which PhD program is right for them, assisting with development of their personal statement and resume, as well as fine-tuning their interview skills. Students will also explore the expectations of a PhD and consider the diversity of career options for PhD graduates.

To register for theย workshop, please email Dr. Mike Caudle (wcaudle [at] emory [dot] edu).
