Edith M. Lord, PhD
Senior Associate Dean
for Graduate Education
Welcome from the Dean
The Office for Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs supports the trainee community at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. Whether you are a graduate student, a postdoctoral appointee, or are involved in a graduate school preparatory program, we are here to facilitate all aspects of your training.
We are happy to answer your questions, advise you of resources available to the University of Rochester community and link you to other trainees at the University of Rochester. We hope you will participate in the many academic and professional development activities the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry has to offer. Ultimately, you will determine the skills and abilities you develop during your time in Rochester and we encourage you to give this serious thought.
Welcome to the University of Rochester! I look forward to meeting you, discussing your scientific interests and working with you to develop a strong community of emerging scientific leaders.

Our Center for Professional Development works to supplement every trainee's scientific education with the professional and career development opportunities most appropriate to each individual trainee’s interests and skills.
Center for Professional Development
Traditional biomedical research training programs fail to adequately prepare trainees for the full diversity of careers that they will ultimately experience in the biomedical workforce. The UR Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (URBEST) program will therefore provide a flexible, autonomy-supportive learning program to support PhD graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in their career and professional development.
