The 2016 program for the 4th annual SINAInnovations Trainee Forum was highly interactive and tailored specifically for graduate and medical students, residents, and post-doctoral fellows.
The program started with a series of breakout sessions detailing the many steps involved in bringing novel therapeutics to market, followed by a lecture from a true academic entrepreneur. This year we hosted the 2nd Annual Young Innovators Pitch Competition. The day concluded with a networking reception where trainees met professionals from a variety of industries and learned about available resources for entrepreneurs.
Our networking reception is designed for students and post-doctoral fellows to learn about a variety of career paths from industry experts. We also held the first ever Entrepreneurship Resources Fair to acquaint trainees with the many entrepreneurship resources at Mount Sinai and in New York City. Various industry professionals and resources were available to discuss their fields and what their jobs entail. Trainees circulated and explored different careers, and learned about the resources available for their entrepreneurial endeavors.
