7 “Baby-Yet-Bold Steps” That Steer You To Research Career

When I started this blog, one of the prime objectives was to inform, encourage and educate medical students & young doctors in Bangladesh about career in public health and research. I wrote two blog posts already on this topic- Switching career: Your parents are not your enemies! and Research Career For Medical Students: Bangladesh Perspectives [Part 1] and posted their links on “Platform“; a Facebook based group of medical students and young doctors in Bangladesh.

I had tremendous feedback from enthusiastic aspirants! If I accumulate and synthesize their quires on Facebook messages and/or comments, I would end up having this very question most of the time “I am now studying or doing internship and I am highly interested in research career. What should I do now to move forward to my goal?”

Research Career For Medical Students: Bangladesh Perspectives [Part 1]

Research is an integral part of medical science. Unfortunately, in Bangladesh medical students get very little scope to do research in their undergraduate curriculum. Even those who want to be  a health researcher in future, they often can’t make it due to lack of proper guidance and support. From BUET every year many students are going to abroad to pursue their research career. On the other hand, many medical students even don’t know about these opportunities and how to proceed to have one for themselves.

I asked medical students why do you think BUET students get more chance to  study abroad and in answer they said that  it’s very easy for BUETians as they have a strong network of seniors studying abroad to guide them throughout the whole process. And it’s actually a fact! So I have decided to elucidate on this matter in my upcoming blog-posts.  Continue reading “Research Career For Medical Students: Bangladesh Perspectives [Part 1]”

Switching career: Your parents are not your enemies!

Steve Jobs in his commencement address at Stanford University in 2005 said that “Don’t live in dogma which means living a life set by others choice.” He also said not to settle down until we find the work that we love. So we should keep looking for the work that we really love and have passion for.

At the very first week in Dhaka Medical College, back in 2006, I realized that doctor as a profession is not my cup of tea! It’s a great profession, no doubt in that, but I love to do other things! But what I wanted to be, I didn’t know at that time. So I kept looking for my passion during the whole period and few days before my final professional exam in 2011 I found what I wanted to be. I found what I loved to do and had passion for it! It’s Public Health and Research!  Continue reading “Switching career: Your parents are not your enemies!”
