I work in research in one of the top 3 pediatric facilities in the world. We mainly work on leukemias (AML and ALL), but also some work on breast and lung cancer. My specialty is Immunology.

I currently have an undergrad student who comes in a couple of times a week and she's shooting for Harvard or Columbia med school. Her MCAT score is a 41 S. I'm sure she'll get in.

There's no way she is human if she got a 41 on her MCATs.

I don't really want to specify the hospital I'm in. Look up the top 3 or top 5 pediatric hospitals in the world, it's one of them.

Doesn`t seem to be any British doctors or nures out there! I`ve been a nurse in the good old NHS for 25 years (except for a 2.5 year stint in a private hospital). Specialise in the operating theatre or OR as you yanks call it!

i know this thread is a little old but i just found it!!

I'm a registered nurse, working in intensive care at a major public hospital in adelaide australia, currently studying for my post-grad in intensive care nursing.

Before this i was in Paediatric ICU, and before that orthopaedics.

But I love ICU - its where i'm meant to be!!

I'm pretty much open to all kinds of jobs when I graduate in the summer, but I'm hoping and crossing my fingers for a job in the development "business"!
How are you graduating in 5 years? I hope you are getting your PharmD

I really admire you guys you do a great job and should be really proud of yourselves. My son was born with heart problems and to see the work you do first hand is incredible.

For a moment I cringed thinking you worked in the WAHS, but you're south west Out west tends to think all diabetics can happily follow some retarded chart with 'portions and other assorted garbage' and that is somehow ideal. But I do have coeliacs as well, which makes it worse.

Anyway. You're up for long service!
