Personal Development and Well-Being

Professional development represents one aspect of personal development. Graduate school and postdoctoral scholarship take several years, usually at least two to achieve a master’s degree, usually several more for a doctor’s degree and a postdoctoral scholar residency. All elements of your professional academic experience factor into your personal growth, but academic demands may crowd out time for personal well-being. Take steps toward achieving work-life balance by dedicating time to personal well-being, for it’s as essential to your professional development as coursework and other professional experience.
