Professional Development

The Professional Development committee works to aid the undergraduate body of CNS reach their goals for after their undergraduate years whether that be in industry, academia, medicine, etc. Through the organization of networking events and professional panels, we hope to facilitate a smooth transition for CNS students toward their career aspirations. We also work directly with the CNS Career Services and Health Professions Offices to help shape outcomes for college-wide improvements in career exploration and professional development.


cns connections

Each semester, CNS Connections offers CNS undergrads an ideal networking opportunity to reach out and connect with company representatives interested in meeting some of the best and brightest undergrads UT has to offer. Companies attending CNS Connections represent a wide variety of industries, ranging from biotech companies to consulting firms.

medical/graduate student panel

Once a semester, Professional Development hosts a panel of current students in medical school or graduate school. These widely attended events provide an opportunity for undergrads to ask any questions they’ve been having as well as get an insider looks into admissions and what medical school/graduate school life is like.
