So, I am at a crossroads right now... I can go one of two routes. I can go the traditional route, shadow a doctor, get involved in lots of medical, doctorly things. I'm a biomedical engineering major, and I've been doing very well in my classes. My teacher decided to give me a job, so I've been working for him for a while. He apparently really likes what I've been doing for the program, so here's what he offered me... I'll need to stay completely devoted to engineering over the next two years. I'm helping him develop a new curriculum for engineering students. I'm giving multiple presentations in front of hundreds of people, and gathering a student committee to write to an academic journal. I'm writing homework problems, designing the web page, and the graphic art... He promised me great recommendations anywhere, from himself, the dean, and others. I've got a free ride to become an officer of an engineering society. This is all great, for non-medical ECs. The big problem is, this will pretty much wipe out any chance of me getting significant medicine-related ECs. I've got it scheduled so that I'll have all of my med school prereqs, plus more (I'm taking microbiology for the first time this summer). What would you guys do, you think this is a good idea? I'm honestly extremely excited about this..
