The Office of Research and The Graduate School have created university-wide Individual Development Plan (IDP) guidelines and forms for USC’s postdoctoral scholars and graduate students.  While the use of IDPs is currently required for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars funded by NIH grants, the Office of Research and The Graduate School strongly encourage the use of IDPs for all USC postdoctoral scholars and graduate students because it identifies professional development opportunities and milestones, as well as providing a written framework for career planning of the trainees.
