I recently made this same post, which can be located in the pre-medical directory; however, the suggestion was put forth that I repost my queries in the PhD/MD category, as more help might be available. That being said, here is my original post. Thank you for taking the time to read it! -- I recently became fascinated with the field of Immunology. With my prior interests stemming from Neural-science, I thought it would be absolutely fascinating to combine the two into a MD program with a focus on neural-immunology. However, my troubles come into play when I try to research the lifestyles of immunologists. Income doesn't interest me. I want to know if I'll be able to work with people/patients rather than sit in a lab all day long, working on the same experiment for years on end, which is the last thing I would want out of my career. That being said, are there any med graduates here with this type of specialization? Or are there any med students who know people that specialize in this field? Even immunology alone would be excellent. Thanks for any help!
