Ten reasons why you should (not) start a PhD

I am a MD, with a PhD is cancer genetics and I was wanting to tell you a little about some of my views on why you should, or should not do a PhD. This is especially relevant for YIs with a medical background, whose core training is already so long and intense. Still, you might be considering this PhD option and I hope this post can be of guidance to you.

Balancing Multiple and Diverse Research Interests

Hi everyone! Today I am posting on behalf of previous SIOP YI-NET member Kathryn Demanelis (USA), check out her post about how she balances her diverse research interests:
I am not sure if I am the best person to write about how to balance research interests since I am generally interested in everything. My dissertation research examined two broad topics: descriptive pediatric cancer epidemiology in Southeast Asia and chronic cadmium exposure and its effects on the epigenome. Both of these projects were based in Thailand and focused on vulnerable populations. Otherwise, these projects are quite different and involve very different datasets, types of analyses, and research questions.
