Graduate Research, Education, and Training (GREAT) Group

The GREAT Group provides professional development to, and fosters the exchange of information and ideas among, the faculty and administrative leaders of biomedical PhD, MD-PhD, and postdoctoral programs. The Group functions as a national forum to help these programs achieve their goal of educating successful biomedical researchers.

GREAT Group members also evaluate policy developments that affect the recruitment and retention of new scientific talent and provide direction on these issues.

The GREAT Group meets annually to discuss these issues and plan their activities at what has become the profession's premier meeting devoted to graduate and postdoctoral education.

The GREAT Group also sponsors GREATmail, a listserve primarily intended to serve as a vehicle for seeking and exchanging information about training and educational related issues.
