Pathways to Healthcare

Wednesday, November 6, 2019
4:00pm – 5:30pm

Storrs Campus
MCHU 206

It is a common misconception that working in the field of healthcare requires going to medical school. While medical school is necessary to become a physician, there are hundreds of other roles that exist in the field of healthcare, many of which do not require years and years of graduate schooling (or none at all). This event will focus on what some of those career options are, including both patient-care-focused roles and more behind-the-scenes roles, where you can find more information about them, and advice for those of you who are looking to get started pursuing one of these careers. The event will also include an opportunity to hear from a panel of alumni who are currently working in an array of healthcare careers, including:

Patrick Adams, Clinical Collaborator at Foundation Medicine

Alyssa Blanchette, Medical Device Rep at Paragon 28 and former Medical Scribe at ScribeAmerica

Sayan Basu, Test Engineer at Medtronic

Sumia Shaikh, Innovation and External Research Manager at Vertex Pharmaceuticals

Monique Mai, Surgical Neurophysiologist at Neuromonitoring Associates

More alumni panelists are TBA as the event draws nearer.
