Or, hear from Natasha Malpani (class of 2009/10), who is featured in this video describing the academic life of an Oxford student.
Most of our alumni stay in touch, and there is an opportunity for new students to meet graduates of the course. Alumni still in Oxford will often mentor a new student over the course of the MSc. Some of the destinations they have gone on to include Oxford DPhils (a very popular route, attracting approximately 20% of students each year), PhDs at universities all over the world (a further 20%) and research assistant posts in Oxford. About 20% of each class has either returned to or begun medical school, in Oxford or elsewhere. Two of our alumni over the past eight years have gone into the teaching profession, and a number have gone into industry.
Returning to Medical School:
Adam Dmytriw: I am enrolled in the Doctor of Medicine program at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. I have been a visiting medical student at Johns Hopkins University, Cambridge University and the University of Toronto. I am currently performing research in the fields of Community Health, Immunology and Neuroradiology, as well as developing online resources for medical students.
Continuing on to a second Masters degree:
Beginning a DPhil:
Ana Raykova: I am working in the Institute of Experimental Immunology at the University of Zurich with Prof. Christian Münz. My project is studying the defect in the humoral immune responses in mice with reconstituted human immune system components (huNSG mice).
