About the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies

Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (GPS) was formed in the Fall of 2023. The principal aim was to concertedly and uniformly support both our graduate students and postdoctoral scholar trainees within the Medical School at the University of Minnesota. 

This newly created office combines all services and resources offered by our prior offices Biomedical Graduate Research Education and Training (BGREAT), Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Outreach (ODIO) and the Office of Professional Development (OPD). Furthermore, the GPS Office newly incorporates dedicated services to support our postdoctoral scholars.

Collectively, the GPS Office now has dedicated program managers to support each graduate student and postdoctoral scholar trainees, as well as a dedicated program coordinator for career development services and an office associate staff member to handle backend operations essential to facilitating the services, resources and program offerings to our learners.
