The BPC Career Enhancement and Training Committee and Newsletter are
conducting a small survey regarding the level of teaching experience of the typical
Penn postdoc. Our findings will be published in the next BPC Newsletter.
If you have not already, please assist us by filling out the
quick survey linked below by *March 30th*? It will only take 5-10 minutes of your time, and at the end you will have
the opportunity to enter a contest to win a $10 gift certificate to Amazon or a local vendor.

From the Penn Med Art Show Committee:
It’s time for Penn Med Art Show submissions!
If you are an artist, or just enjoy being creative once in a while, we invite you to submit your work– including but not limited to–canvas, tapestry, and sculpture. The art need not be science or medicine related (although of course it can be).
We are also looking for performance artists to perform during the opening night reception on Friday, February 21, 2014.
The show will run for two weeks in the Fox Gallery at Claudia Cohen Hall on campus. The Penn Med Art Show displays artwork by the personnel of CHOP, UPHS, the VA, and the associated graduate and professional schools—including you!
Contact the Penn Med Art Show Committee if you have any questions about the show or your submission.
Dr. Judith Swan from the Princeton Writing Center will be here on Monday, December 9th, 2013 to give her annual workshop on Scientific Writing. For those of you who were able to attend her Pre-NPA week talks, she will build on what she has previously said, but for those who did not attend in September, do not worry, she will provide new material that will be beneficial to everyone!
Here are the details:
