Fireside Chat: An Open Discussion with Dr. Mostafa Fatehi

In our first event, UBC’s Dr. Fatehi shared his academic background that led him to switch from mathematics/physics to physiology and biology. He stressed the importance of having great mentors, how to build professional relationships during clinical research, selecting electives in preparation for CaRMS, and the neurosurgical job prospect. The conversation followed with a wide range of questions from our participants. Unfortunately, our first event was not recorded, but we hope to bring Dr. Fatehi back in the future for those who were unable to participate in this fruitful discussion.
