The 7 Secrets of Highly Succcessful PhDs and Masters Students

03:00 pm - 05/16/2018

@ UC Davis

Activities and Recreation Center Ballroom B
Davis CA  95616



For UC Davis graduate students and postdoctoral scholars only:

What do graduate students and postdocs do to finish on time, to overcome isolation, doubt and writer’s block, and to enjoy the process? And just as importantly what do they do in order to spend guilt-free time with their family and friends and perhaps even have holidays? If this sounds appealing, then this session will be of particular use to you.

This workshop describes the seven key habits that will help you complete your graduate degree or postdoc. Just as importantly, these habits can greatly reduce the stress and increase the pleasure involved in the process of finishing your degree or training.

The workshop helps you to understand how to increase your effectiveness and outcomes in the following key areas:

- how you deal with your advisor
- how you structure your writing time
- your attitude (or lack thereof!) in relation to your research
- dealing with writer’s block or having difficulty writing
- getting the help you need when you are stuck
- juggling multiple commitments and never having enough time
- keeping on going when the going gets tough

Light refreshments will be served.
