Hi everybody,

I just started my IM residency a month ago, and the talk has begun about fast-tracking for fellowships. I have a PhD but want to practice clinical oncology in an academic environment, maybe running clinical trials. The bottom line is I want to be primarily a clinician and not work in the lab. Does anyone understand how fast-tracking works and if it would be a good idea for people who don't want to be lab rats? Thanks!

hey-

I am an MSIV applying to IM, and I am thinking about oncology as well. I am not interested at all in research, I really want to go into private practice. I have heard bits and pieces about fast tracking, but I'm not sure what it entails, or if it is really a prerequisite for a research career.

please, someone- shed some light!!

thanks
