Friday the 11th of October (right BEFORE Boris’ eventual no-deal Brexit), MD-PhD students from the UK and the rest of Europe are warmly invited to come meet one another and discuss the variety of forms that an MD-PhD career can take across European countries. Future physician-scientist, if you ever wondered how you could best balance clinic and research during your career — importantly, not only during your studies but also later in life —, you should definitely come and listen to our speakers life stories.
