Individual Development Plan
The UF Graduate School requires all graduate students to develop an IDP during the first year of their program to help to explore career options. The IDP should be evaluated each year. There is no required format for the IDP. Below is a universal IDP developed by the University Graduate School, and a web based tool is available here (https://myidp.sciencecareers.org/?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1).
Students can participate in additional concentrations that require a specific combination of courses be taken as part of the graduate program. Currently the Interdisciplinary Concentration in Reproductive Biotechnology and the Interdisciplinary Concentration in Domestic Animal Genomics are administered by the Department of Animal Sciences, while other concentrations may be available elsewhere. Students are encourage to discuss these concentrations with their supervisory committee.
