  1. It's not an MD, it's an MMedSci, but it is a specialised course in itself, leading to a specialist career in human fertility science and assisted reproduction. So I suppose I'm not worried about specialisation, other than developing a research interest area? But then again, I know scientists oten have multiple research interests. I thought as much. But if I wanted to get onto a PhD programme, a publication history would be more relevant? So overall would you guys say it is foolish to pass up the opportunity to take part in a project which gave applied job skills and a chance of publication, in favour of something you personally are more invested in (in terms of interest, and where it might be going long-term)?
  2. I'd love to do a PhD but because of my circumstances and finances I think this will be a terminal masters and I will be heading into the industry.
  3. The director of my masters course implied that I should choose my research project (thesis) based on how quickly I want my name in a journal. It got me thinking about the benefits of having a publication on your CV so early in your career - and if there really are any? Do prospective employers actually look favourably upon candidates who have a publication history? Would you be 'worse off' on the job market if you graduated your masters without a publication - especially if others on your course DID graduate with one? Or is publication history mostly only relevant if you want to continue in academia? Is choosing a research area based on how quickly/easily it can get pubished, actually the best way to make that decision?
