Individual Development Plans

The University of Maryland School of Medicine (SOM) is committed to providing a top-tier research training environment for Postdoctoral Scholars. To support the development of Postdoctoral Scholars in their mentored research projects and their trajectory towards independent careers, the School of Medicine Office of Postdoctoral Scholars (SOM OPS) suggests the use of an Individual Development Plan (IDP) & Annual Progress Evaluation.

The IDP form for postdocs can be downloaded here.
