Project Details


DESCRIPTION: (provided by applicant): I have had a strong interest in science
for a long time and the potential to contribute to the understanding of science
is exciting to me. I would like to apply scientific contributions to medicine
in the future, and a strong background in research will enable me to accomplish
this. It is for this reason that I am pursuing a combined MD/PhD) degree. A
graduate education with extensive research and courses leading to a PhD will
allow me to gain experience in formulating hypotheses and testing them
critically. This training will also create opportunities to present materials
to others in the form of publications and presentations, which are necessary
skills to learn for a scientific profession. In a medical setting, these
scientific principles will enable me to think about the underlying mechanism of
a disease when treating a patient. A medical education will help me to apply my
research to medical problems by allowing me to understand the pertinent
problems in medicine, and giving me a comprehensive knowledge of the human body
and the interrelationship of the organ systems and physiology of the body.
