While alumni of the program as well-positioned to continue at the bench, many choose to go into different career tracks. Alumni who have entered government positions sometimes do more work at their desk, reviewing articles to advise and create policies that affect the health of whole cities, counties, states, and / or nations. The ability to present science is crucial, so some have focused their career goals on becoming scientific writers. Some have returned to school and are engaged in medicine or law. Whether the field is pharmacology, nutrition, medicine, or toxicology, there is likely an MET alum there somewhere.
Please see our “Careers Exchange” page, where program alumni can post openings that they have or are aware of in their companies, or students can talk about upcoming graduation and indicate careers they are interested in learning about more, and some career advice that has been shared and exchanged between students and alumni.
