Learning to Write

Part of my coursework is a class that discusses research methodology.  Essentially, it is the art of writing research papers and conducting research.  I have learned how to apply for grants, come up with a thesis and design a study.  Interesting, even if ultimately research will not be my area of interest.  At least I know how to critique research papers and understand some of the things they discuss.  This class has kept me busier than any of my other classes.  I suppose it is important to know, but the real challenges will come starting Fall semester.  This is where several classes including physics, pathology, radiobiology and biostatistics will be taught.  I believe I am about to become very busy.
