Student Portfolios

Biology Students are encouraged to develop a Professional Portfolio throughout their four years that highlights the skills they have obtained for their chosen career. This portfolio helps them develop a professional identity that will assist them in putting together a resume and preparing for interviews for graduate/medical schools as well as for employment.
