This session will explore the training and career outcomes of US-trained scientists.  The first paper will examine the effect of team size in one's field of science on the probability of having an academic science career.  The second paper examines the impact of the NIH Yellow Beret program on subsequent academic careers.  The third paper explores the career outcomes of Chinese graduate students who remain in the US compared to those who return to China.  The final paper examines how visa policies in the US changed the incentives for US-trained graduate students to marry a citizen.  Together these papers will examine the career implications for US trained PhD scientists.
