An Interview With Professor Kate Denton
Written by Carla Edgley
Pictured above: Dr Kate Denton in her Lab.
So far, in my very short time as a Science Ambassador I’ve noticed a question that always pops up when speaking to future students; not many know the many career possibilities a Science degree can lead to. Realising this I decided to speak to someone who has had a prominent career in Science and could give future students an idea about a career in research, just one of the possibilities a Bachelor of Science at Monash can lead to.
Many of you are probably snowed under with managing competing deadlines for assignments.
So I will keep this article brief so that you are not too distracted.
In this week’s edition of ‘Career Goat’ I would like to talk about ‘Employability Skills’.
Are you a Science, Physics or Maths Student?
Want to know more about the Bureau of Meteorology’s Graduate program? The Bureau of Meteorology is holding a Graduate Meteorology Information Event tonight!
If you are an undergraduate, post graduate or recent graduate from Physics, Mathematics or Atmospheric Science disciplines, you should come and find out about the Graduate Meteorology program available with the Bureau of Meteorology.
The semester break probably seems like a distant memory as you become more entrenched in your studies.
In this week’s edition of ‘Career Goat’ I would like to talk about ‘Cover Letters and Resumes’.
Monash has created a new way for you to develop your employability skills online. It’s called Leap into Leadership Online (LiLO), and it’s made up of a suite of free online modules you can complete any time.
Hundreds of students have already completed the modules and given them great feedback – so make 2016 the year you become a leader.
Well I hope things are going well and you had time to attend the range of events as part of ‘Career Festival’ held at Monash.
Are you are busy preparing applications for ‘Graduate Programs’? Don’t forget you can book an appointment with me or one of the consultants in Career Connect for advice and feedback. Book your appointment here.
In this week’s edition of ‘Career Goat’ I would like to talk about ‘Leadership’.
Introducing: Career Goat, Lisa Happell
Did you know that science have their very own Careers Education Consultant? We are the only faculty to have this. That consultant would be me ‘Lisa Happell’.
I have been in the role for nearly two years and really enjoy working with students to help them with their career decisions. Throughout the year I will run a range of career seminars and events and every week I have individual (30 minute) career appointments available
You will find me (usually with coffee) on Tuesdays to Thursday in the Science Student Lounge and Science Student Services. If you would like to talk about your career in science or if you have no idea about careers in science then please book an appointment with me via ‘Career Gateway’.
I look forward to meeting you to discuss all things ‘Career’.
While the layman might enjoy perusing their phone to gaze upon their friend’s lunches or recent trips overseas medical professionals are using their very own social media apps to help save patient’s lives. Newly developed apps such as Figure 1 are taking the guess work out of complicated medical cases.
Launched in 2013 Figure 1 allows medical professional (doctors, EMTs, nurses etc) to upload images of their various medical scans/samples/specimens to crowd-source diagnosis. Technically anyone can view the images but only medical professionals can become verified (much like celebrities and their social media pages). The idea was born from the fact that 10,000 medically related emails and texts were already being sent between doctors each day in the U.S, according to Figure 1 co-founder Dr. Joshua Landy.
Images are often heavily censored to protect patient’s privacy and are not published if deemed unnecessary. Not only does it allow professional collaboration but can be used as a teaching tool, professors often upload medical images for their students to comment and discuss to support their classes.
