THANKS, DOCS! Career Night 2014 a Success Thanks to Local Physicians Offering Their Time

The 16th Annual John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) Career Night was held on the evening of Sep. 24, 2014, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. About 20 physicians from a wide variety of specialties were in attendance–there to answer any questions posed by current medical students who are beginning to ponder what field they will take up when they begin their residency training after earning their degrees.

Breakout sessions are one especially appealing part of Career Night, allowing each student to speak with a physician informally, no-holes barred on questions.

“What’s it really like being in a field that demands far more than 40 hours of your time during a typical work week?” is one we imagine being posed to Pediatrics Chair Dr. Kenneth Nakamura, also a JABSOM alumnus.

Career Night 2014 Committee Chairperson MS2 Yusuke Kobayashi reported many of the students said they wished that they could have stayed and talked with the physicians even longer!

 

Mahalo to Dr. Wendell Foo, who has helped round up the physicians who give so generously of their time to offer advice and the value of their experience to our students.
