Ryan Does Resi

Ryan Does Resi

Ryan Does Resi is a blog of Kim (the Ryan in the story) who has been doing residential treatment due to her eating disorder.  Kim’s style of dialect and and blogging are definitely a little strong for some, so caution is advised, but also, within all that verbiage and extra “attitude,” which is nice to have when there are issues a person is dealing with.

Ryan’s writing style is like sitting next to a friend, listening to a conversation.  It definitely helps you understand what a person might be feeling like when they have an eating disorder, in residency, or just a regular, human day.  Good read.

Psychology.Org

Psychology.Org

We refocused our efforts to promoting psychology as a field, explicitly addressing its role in modern medicine, the humanities and social and scientific research. We wanted to make a site that engaged with two audiences: prospective students considering an education in psychology and job seekers, be they recent grads or professionals looking to advance their careers or return to school.

As you explore the site, you will recognize our effort to not only address these audiences, but to really show visitors what it takes to move from the classroom to the workforce, whether that be to clinical care, private practice or a corporate consultancy.

We’re excited to be a part of the movement advancing public knowledge of psychology. At this pivotal moment in the history of the discipline, we’re confident psychology.org is poised to make a lasting difference.

We assist administrators and faculty members in improving and assessing the research environment at their institutions.

CUR also provides information on the importance of undergraduate research to state legislatures, private foundations, government agencies, and the U.S. Congress. CUR welcomes faculty and administrators from all academic institutions. Our primary advocacy is in support of faculty and undergraduate students engaged in research. CUR achieves its vision through efforts of its membership as organized in a divisional structure that includes arts and humanities, biology, chemistry, engineering, geosciences, health sciences, mathematics and computer science, physics and astronomy, psychology, social sciences, an at-large division that serves administrators and other disciplines, and a division for directors of undergraduate research programs.

PhDStudent.Com

PhDStudent.Com

We also have hand-selected several bloggers to share their graduate school experiences with you. Our bloggers include current graduate students, a post doc and fellow, and an academic consultant to provide you with diverse perspectives from across the graduate school spectrum.

The PhD forums are another free resource we came up with to help connect past, current, and future grad students, providing you with an outlet to share your experiences and support one another. We’re also continuing to develop new tools to make your life a little easier (just remember to create a free account on our PhD People page to have full access to the tools!). For example, undergraduate and graduate students alike could benefit from submitting a question to Ask the PhDs, a Q&A column answered by faculty and industry PhDs about all facets of life in academia. Those who have completed grad school will especially want to check out our MyCV tool, which can eliminate the guesswork of formatting your curriculum vitae and increase your exposure by providing you with your personalized URL.

We could go on, but you probably get the idea: PhDStudent is a collection of diverse resources all packed into one site. We’re continually adding new articles and tools to stay up-to-date on the latest hot topics and trends in academia, so hopefully you’ve found what you’ve been looking for. Thanks for visiting, and see you around in the forums!
