Career development

The Doctoral College offers doctoral students various information, training, networking and personalised advice aimed at developing their careers. These actions allow doctoral students a chance to join the different professional realms accessible to doctors.   

Career development

Training cycle: Professional future

This cycle of courses has been designed to accompany doctoral students throughout their doctoral training. It includes two awareness-raising seminars (interactive presentation with several speakers) supplemented by in-depth workshops in small groups, and personalised counselling sessions (individual appointments, personalised listening). 
Apart from this teaching cycle, a few independent modules related to career plans are also available.

Meet-ups and Networking 

Among the actions proposed by the Doctoral College are Career Meet-ups. These meet-ups allow doctoral students to discover professions, business sectors or doctoral courses. They enable them to meet companies and PhDs working in the private and public sectors (large, medium and small companies, start-ups, administrations, local authorities, associations, etc.), to imagine themselves in different types of organisations and professions. The place given to discussion during these meetings is important. It is an opportunity for doctoral students to understand the added value of their doctoral training and to broaden their professional network. For companies, it is an opportunity to present their activities and their professions, to communicate their expectations and to meet their future employees or partners. These meetings are also open to young PhDs from Sorbonne University. 
Some of these meetings are organised in collaboration with the Club des Docteurs de Sorbonne Université. Doctoral students are regularly asked to participate in the organisation of these days. We support them in this activity which they can then promote in their portfolio. 

The faculty of medicine is closed to the public and operates according to a business continuity plan (research, pedagogy, administrative) since Monday, March 16, 2020. The closure of the faculty to the public effectively results in the cancellation of all courses in face-to-face. Research activities and vital administrative activities are maintained, under the conditions specified by the university administration in the Business Continuity Plan. Beyond the end of classroom lessons, university libraries are closed. The situation is constantly changing, staff and students are invited to consult their emails, the university intranet and the FAQ to stay informed.

All users (students and staff) have access to more precise information on a dedicated page:
