Medicine

Post by Ultrashogun » Wed Jan 04, 2006 5:13 am

Im studying medicine now, but my goal is not to be an actual doctor, but after 6 years Id like to specialize in biochemistry. Id just like to get some opinions on this. A negative aspect would be that It takes longer, around 10 years, but I spoke with a friend who does biochemistry and he says that their work is really just uninspired repitition, watching centrifuges and such.

So can I get better positions in this field after having gone around medicine to get there?

you can become a doctor-investigator, if you know what i mean, but what else do you expect of biochemistry ? you work in a lab :roll: nowadays there are such advanced systems, the only thing you need to do is bring in your sample and a while later you'll get your product.

yes and that research also doesn't mean you're experimenting the whole day. No, the experiments is nothing compared with literature studies and so on. Of a whole month, you may do 1 day an experiment and that's much.

Thats cool, Im pretty sure its not fun and games, but literature studys are a more refreshing kind of work than mechanicly working machines.

true :) and it asks good thinking to set up a good experiment. Experiments will only be sustained by a comittee unless a good idea is behind it.
