As physicians, we all go through many transitions during our professional growth, each one with increasing responsibilities. For early stage physician-scientists who directly provide patient care while pursuing research, critical professional transitions in both clinical and research realms occur simultaneously, making these transitions uniquely challenging and rewarding.
My FAER Mentored Research Training Grant (MRTG) started January 1, 2017. Needless to say, it started off with excitement and joy. However, I quickly realized that two years is not a lot of time and could go by before I noticed it. My mentor on the FAER grant, Dr. Jianren Mao, and I planned my career transition from the very beginning of the FAER award period. Essentially, we had two major decisions, one about the research itself, the other about leveraging the FAER experience to become independent.
