Ultimately, I’d like to pursue a career as a clinician scientist, where I’m able to help bridge the gap between an academic’s bench and a patient’s bedside. This dual perspective enables clinician scientists to potentially be involved in all aspects of translational medicine. This discovery process is especially important in oncology, where breakthroughs are being made each and every day.
The MD/PhD is a long and demanding program. It helps to be surrounded by incredibly supportive colleagues, friends and family and also to realize that you’ve been given an amazing opportunity to follow a challenging but exceptionally rewarding path.
