Sometimes it helps to make a bad joke out of those odd moments in life. At the interview (when I applied to become a PhD student) one associate professor asked me a question and it has haunt me ever since.
Also me: OMG, I don´t even understand the question!
But I do have questions – lots of them…
- What is so special about this specific group of patients that I want to study?
- How does their experiences differ from other group with similar preparations?
- Why is this research important and what is the future value?
- …and so on…into infinity.
Before the summer I agreed with my supervisors to study the subject gastroenterology in-depth so that I would have the prerequisite skills to enhance my research project when I see them in one week from now and here I am making memes… Back to finding focus and answers!
