MD/PhD students featured in science Magazine

Two students in Penn State College of Medicine’ MD/PhD Medical Scientist Training Program were featured in the July issue of Science magazine.

Carson Wills, a fourth-year graduate student in the H.G. Wang lab, and Mallory Peterson, a second-year graduate student in the Steven Schiff lab, were part of a NextGen Voices article titled Pithy burnout prevention.

They both submitted a response to the prompt “In exactly six words, what is the secret to preventing burnout?”

Wills’ response was featured in the Invest in Hobbies section: “Do something that brings joy daily.” She is from Albuquerque, N.M., and received her bachelor of science in biology from Haverford College in 2014.

Peterson’s was in the Maintain Perspective section: “Love yourself more than your work.” She is from Clinton Corners, N.Y., and received her bachelor of science in biomedical engineering from Penn State in 2016.
