Episode 61: Michael - former Nuclear Engineer and current first year student here at UUSOM

Jan 13, 2016

“I felt like what I was doing was very likely to never be used and it made it very hard for me to get engaged in what I was doing.” After receiving a PhD in Nuclear Engineering from #MIT and five years into his career at an Idaho National Lab, Michael felt he had more to offer and knew medicine was the career for him to transition into.  We talk about his experience in the field of Nuclear Engineering and his journey to med school.   We discuss what the cadaver lab experience has been like for him as a non traditional student without an anatomy background and his experience thus far as a first year med student.
