Aspiring Docs Update

We’re pleased to announce that we’ve added a new fact sheet to the Aspiring Docs website: What’s It Like to… Be a Parent in Medical School?

We’ve also added four new Inspiring Stories to our collection:

  • The Rev. Suzanne Watson: Wake Forest School of Medicine, 2017
    After a career as an Episcopal priest, Suzanne decided to pursue medicine at the age of 48. She says you’re never too old to live your dreams.
  • Valerie A. Pierre: Creighton University School of Medicine, 2017
    Valerie was inspired to help others during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the support of her parents.
  • Michael On’Gele: Duke University School of Medicine, 2018
    Witnessing the health disparities in his community has motivated Michael to practice medicine in urban areas.
  • Abdul Hassan: University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine, 2018
    Inspired by his mother’s nearly fatal medical complications and his late mentor’s battle with cancer, Abdul has pursued a career in medicine.

Lastly, we also have several new posts by medical student bloggers on Aspiring Docs Diaries.

As always, if you are interested in partnering with us on any new fact sheets or resources, or would like to suggest a student to participate in the blog or aspiringdocs.

Warmest regards,

Janelle Peters
