I started in the lab right when my PI was starting a new project, and she kinda handed it over to me. I produced some data which did not support the hypothesis. To get this data it took 6 months (300 hours) of learning, failing, then finally getting reproducible results. The next step is to gather and grow yeast mutants under different conditions to find the transcription factors of the gene of interest... but my PI doesn’t want to pursue that, not yet at least, because it’s a huge... “Unmeaningful” research experience?

Applying to IM (categorical) after Prelim in FM

But now I became interested in Internal Medicine and I am not sure about the options or pathway for the same. Can I be eligible to apply for PGY-2 in IM after PGY-1 in FM or should I need to start from PGY-1 again? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! (Source: Student Doctor Network)
