Ph.D. Alumna Perspective - Amber Wilk

Between formal courses, serving as a teaching assistant, consulting, and internships at companies to gain real-world experience, I felt I got a little bit of everything. Instructors have an open-door policy, and their efforts to get students involved in applied work is a constant source of opportunity that really prepares you for your post-graduate experience.

Employment: Associate Manager/Research Scientist, United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS)
