I'm about to start my third year of an MPhys degree at Oxford. I'm a very serious student and am predicted to get a good first, but I've recently become more interested in becoming a doctor (and possibly doing medical research) than just pursuing a purely scientific career in physics. I'm slightly worried that my physics degree (whilst being very interesting) might not really be of much use when I change direction (or at least probably won't be as much use as a biochemistry/biology/chemistry etc. degree) I'm trying to choose my courses in the last two years to try and benefit me as much in my medical career as much as possible. There are a couple of issues: 1) There are a couple of topics that look as though they might relate to a medical degree e.g Minor options in 3rd year: Medical and environmental physics Introduction to Biophysics Major option in 4th year: Biological Physics These could either give me an introduction to what I might be studying in the future, or it might just end up being a repetition. If I'm going to learn the same stuff in more detail later there might not be any point in taking these. 2) If I was to go into e.g medical research later on, what sort of undergraduate physics knowledge might be useful? I have no idea if e.g solid state or fluid mechanics is useful to a medical researcher. 3) Does anyone know of any good forums for people wanting advice for medical careers/research?
