  • Lois Smith, MD, PhD

This talk will touch on several key points: PhD (MD) important grounding in science; how to develop friendships, gather mentors and collaborators; keep up with the literature; look at evidence basis for medical practice; ask big questions, stay focused, and drill down; build your resume so that it holds together; and publish the highest level science (journals) you can. You need support at home: You will have kids during the training and there will be some down time; marriages can suffer so put effort into your relationship as well.

Learning Objectives:

1. How to do it all as a clinician scientist without burning out

2. How to have a wonderful time juggling a lot
