Pre-Medicine and Health Careers

Careers in Healthcare Series

In spring 2022, Paul Kamitsuka, MD, (P ’11) led a series of virtual panel conversations with healthcare providers working in different specialties within the medical field.

The panelists discussed opportunities and challenges within their branch of healthcare, gave a sense of their day-to-day work, touched on the major issues in the field, and shared what they love most about their work. Current and admitted students at all stages in their exploration or pursuit of a healthcare career were able to benefit from this opportunity to hear from established practitioners.
