Episode 33: Helios Scholar Shares All

Internships provide students an opportunity to learn more about potential career choices and equally important, following the experience, gauge whether that career is right for them. Joining TGen Talks is Josh Niska, MD — a 2007 Helios Scholar at TGen — who explains the value of his Helios internship experience, how it helped shape his career, and how the lessons learned at the bench continue to inform his work as a radiation oncologist.
  He explains how the technologies and techniques and concepts he learned at TGen helped with his undergraduate education, medical school, residency and his work today. He also discusses the importance of mentorships, and how the Helios Scholars at TGen program offered more than just applicable hands-on learning but created friendships and networks that exist to this day.
