The eighth episode of the podcast Dextrocardia by UMHS features an interview with Dr. David Otohinoyi, Ph.D. candidate at Louisiana State University. He attended the Caribbean medical school All Saints University School of Medicine in Dominica and shares advice on doing research and getting published while in medical school.
For students who've never done research before, it can seem like a daunting, difficult endeavor. In this episode, Dr. Otohinoyi breaks down tips on not only how to get started, but how to thrive in research. He shares a few of his secrets that helped him get more than 30 publications within his four years of pursuing an M.D.
