Training Modules

Brown is committed to the success of our graduate students. We look forward to developing each student to their full potential. A key component of the Initiative to Maximize Student Development are the Skill-Based Training Modules that occur throughout the academic year. These modules have been specifically designed to address gaps, and build skills that may not be readily addressed in the classroom or laboratory. These modules will be complimentary to students' discipline-specific training, helping to build confident, successful, and well-rounded graduates.
