I enjoyed PGSS, and enjoyed the people, but it also showed me how much I didn’t like physics and computer science (which I had never been exposed to before in any type of serious way.) It put me on the trajectory to medicine muchsooner, and probably greatly influenced my decision to go to a six year medical program, and I’m now a dying breed– a physician who trained in Philadelphia who stayed in Philadelphia to work.
