Why are you planning to earn a MD/PhD?
My curiosity in understanding how things work triggers me to view an entire picture (from micro to macro view) to know where the issues occur and then find ways in which these discoveries may be improved. Pursing an MD/PhD will allow me to train in the lab to attempt to solve issues within underlying diseases, along with the combination of also treating patients in a clinical setting.
How do you like to spend time out of lab/away from academic work?
I like to spend time staying active like hiking, indoor rock climbing (because I have yet to try the outdoor type), jogging, really anything to get the heart rate elevated. I also enjoy painting, cooking, or merely watching an action movie.
