The Professional Development Institute is conducted using a seminar approach. Students and faculty collaborate together in small groups throughout the two days of training. This facilitates both learning and building a support network. Listen to PDI participants share their stories of how they created professional bonds in the Professional Development that will last a lifetime.

NOTE: The Professional Development Institute counts toward your requirement to attend an Orientation session as a new member.

In order to preserve the seminar nature of the PDI, there is a limited number of seats in the PDI. Reserve your seat now so you don’t miss out!
