Annual review/Individual development plan for Ph.D. students

Annual review/Individual development plans (AR/IDP) are documents designed to support doctoral students and postdoctoral trainees in developing career plans and trajectories. The AR/IDP provides a structure to identify concrete steps towards long-term goals and a framework for constructive conversation between students and their mentors/advisors.

For Ph.D. students, the AR/IDP is a companion to the Plan of work, which focuses on academic coursework and program milestones. 

Because of the importance of an AR/IDP in a trainee's career development and recent mandates from federal agencies, an annual AR/IDP is required for all doctoral students regardless of funding status.

The AR/IDP is scheduled to remain open until September 30 annually.
