MD2K plans Oct. 25 Career Day

A Career Day featuring panelists from a variety of disciplines will be held Oct. 25, in conjunction with MD2K's 2017 Annual Meeting.

MD2K is holding this career day to help recent and future graduates to make informed decisions and to strengthen their applications. Two panels will be discuss the various career paths, their prospects and tradeoffs, and the future directions these choices could lead to. 

Moderated by Dr. Vivek Shetty of UCLA, lead of MD2K's Training Core, the panels include luminaries such as Dr. M. David Rudd (Distinguished Professor and President of the University of Memphis), Dr. Eric Fain (past group president of Abbott and St. Jude Medical), Dr. Edward Ramos (Program Director at the National Institutes of Health); Dr. Susan Murphy (Professor of Statistics at Harvard and member of the National Academies), Dr. Ida Sim (Professor of Medicine at UC-San Francisco and co-founder of Open mHealth) and Dr. Jim Rehg (Professor, College of Computing at Georgia Tech).
