Hi - I would like to ask a question regarding my personal situation this year. I am between my 2nd and 3rd years of med school and am taking a year off to do research. Since summer, I have been working in a lab in the patholoogy department of my school which focuses on cancer immunotherapy research. My question is whether or not I should try to find a radiation oncology lab for next semester - this would give me about 5 months in each lab if I made the switch in January. The other option is to stay in my current lab for the rest of the year. While this is what I originally planned to do, I want to make sure that I make the most of my year off in terms of learning. While I would like to publish this year, I'm not sure it will happen under the guidance of my current mentor. And, in case anyone is wondering, I am not being supported financially by my current lab, so in that sense I am free to move around. If anyone has any advice, it would certainly be appreciated. Thanks so much, A.
