Hi,

I made with Coursera three Specializations: Anatomy, Michigan, Integrative Medicine, Minnesota, Immunology, Rice. All of them I found very useful in research. Obviously, I am student and not yet stared my real research career... I do enjoy courses here, cause people they speak to you, as in the real lecture and the online studies give me ability to do not interact if the community is not supportive, but eventually find some friends (or try to!), who can discuss same topics with me. It is very difficult to be isolated in general, and I am isolated for a bit longer than others. I am isolated, cause my role for the last year covered work in people’s houses to support vulnerable adults, and elder. Nevertheless, that was absolutely amazing time, cause I understood how difficult is to be unable and how might it be fantastic to live normally and Coursera had been with me at this time as well!

I believed initially that Courses will help me with admission for my studies, but in Europe, only credits had been important, I hope that my Anatomy course will help me to start Surgery with University of Edinburgh this year and I really keep my finger crossed, as I hope to start my residency in Neurosurgery later and change people lives by retrieving their neurological functions! Please keep the fingers crossed as well and recommend me more Courses which may make me ready to be successful ‘Surgeon? ‘ maybe too much said after one year MSR but at least be ready to start two years long residency! And I planned study in Bioinformatics, as the mathematical model of e growth is my studies domain!

Integrative Medicine, I made like wicked - I am Kinesiology practitioner and that was kinda super subject and it also alluded to mental health which is my passion and second domain which I wanted to study cause the injury and accidents are also related with loss of mental capacity, withdrawal and I want to be a super doctor magician, who can bring the colors of their life back, in the front of me many years and the last year of BSc now, which may be unsuccessful, as with my university we focus on not subject related things (like what have I achieved or which skills have I developed, rather than what maters to be ready for medical profession!) and I feel hopeless cause they take my time for nothing and here is subject focused program!

Hello everyone! My name is Grace Gao. I live in Pennsylvania right now but I came from Beijing, China 6 years ago. I am currently a junior in highschool. I have been and am interested in health and life science not only because these subjects intrigue me, but also because I want to use my ability and knowledge to help other people. I am taking Understanding the Brain: The Neurobiology of Everyday Life and Introduction of the Biology of Cancer. As of right now, I am interested in most of the topics in this field, especially neuroscience. I am really enjoying taking courses in Coursera and for me, it’s a great resource to learn and understand more about each topic, and I love it!

Hello everyone,

Thank you @Laura for starting this thread and your warm welcome. I am a scientist in cancer research and partly on neuroscience with backgrounds and interests on molecular biology, genetics, cell biology, protein biochemistry, histopathology, pharmacology, statistics and mathematical modelling. I have taken countless online courses since Coursera’s beginnings some of which I highlighted here: https://coursera.community/health-and-life-sciences-34/what-is-the-best-life-sciences-course-you-have-taken-90 . Clinical sciences have been my passion from early childhood and I find my work very fulfilling. 

I look forward to interacting with all the health and life science topics enthusiasts in these forums.
