Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book defines a path that the author suggests is likely to lead to a successful and fulfilling career as a physician-scientist. … The audience includes medical students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty members. … The book is well written and easy to read and it has useful information for academicians who are not interested in research careers. … Overall, this book should be part of an institution’s library … .” (Marion C. Cohen, Doody’s Review Service, February, 2011)

“The guide is directed toward the young physician just starting out in a research career, it offers sound and sensible advice for those at any stage in their careers. The book is divided into 4 sections, along with relevant appendices and a useful index. … readers excited by the possibility of combining the activities of being both a physician and a dedicated clinical scientist, at any career stage, will find The Physician Scientist’s Career Guide the book for them.” (A. Mark Clarfield, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 306 (9), September, 2011)
