Individual Development Plans (IDPs)

Posted: February 28, 2014

Tufts has initiated individual development plans (IDPs) that are now available on the postdoc website (as well as the Tufts HR website). An IDP is a self analysis form to help motivate thinking on career options and develop your strategy to obtain skills to maximize your potential in achieving your career goal. IDPs are a private document but may be shared with your PI to foster discussion about your career goals. There is also a small change to the annual review form that asks if you have discussed career goals with your PI. It will soon be in place for all trainees (e.g. grad students PREP scholars etc).
