The Professional Development Institute is conducted using a seminar approach. Students and faculty collaborate together in small groups throughout the two and a half days of training. This facilitates both learning and building a support network. 

NOTE: The Professional Development Institute counts toward your requirement to attend an Orientation session as a new member.

In order to preserve the seminar nature of the PDI, there is a limited number of seats in the PDI.

Reserve your seat now so you don't miss out!
