hello there, I was wondering if anyone here could help me.  I am applying 
to several graduate micro programs with the intention of going into 
medical microbiology.  I am afraid however, that if I get my phd that i 
will be limiting myself to a life of research.  I love research but want 
to make sure that there will always be positions that i could fill doing 
more clinical work, culturing bugs in hospitals, infection control in 
hospitals, etc.
	Does a phd limit one to a life of grant funded research?
	What are the opportunities for someone with a phd besides working 
in academic/lab type settings?
	I realize that these are HUGE questions i am asking, but if you 
any ideas or insights that might help me they would be greatly appreciated.

sincerly - jamahr at ucdavis.edu
