I am wanting this issue addressed out of my time in medical school. How to make conscientious decisions as a person entering their profession about how to live well — not get rich and get out — but to really have a decent life while being a physician. It’s really the same question I’d be asking regardless of the field I’m entering.
Just getting back now from a trip to support my fiancé’s Ph.D. application process at a school in Atlanta. Still adjusting to the idea that we’re not going to be in the same city for the next 2-3 years. It is a difficult decision and process for me. However, the long weekend was in general quite enjoyable, and it was nice to spend time together on a semi-vacation in a city that I really didn’t expect to enjoy so much.
I also had the chance to speak with a computational genetics professor at a dinner party. He heard of my interest in Ayurveda, and recounted an experience at a conference in Delhi where he was approached excitedly by a woman relating his presentation to her knowledge of Ayurveda. Since then, he has been curious to explore the relationship between his line of work in genetics, and the world of Ayurveda.
He asked if I could help with this research. Seems like an interesting opportunity.
