Health Professions Panel (March 9, 2021)
BMES had a Healthcare professions panel on Tuesday, March 9th on zoom. At this event, we had BME alumni who pursued careers in healthcare speak about their journey from UR BME to their current profession, and what their role is like now. Our panelists were Louisa Bauer ‘14, a medical student at Tufts, Stephanie Rigot ‘15, a DPT and PhD candidate at University of Pittsburgh, Frances Bell ‘11, A Nurse Practitioner at Mount Sinai, and Ramzi El Hassan ‘10, a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation resident at URMC. Dr. Dalecki and Dr. Lerner gave brief introductions in the beginning, and Dr. Lerner also moderated discussion with the panelists. There were many questions and discussions, including preparing for medical school applications, advice on getting practical experience in healthcare fields, and how BME has shaped the panelists’ path. The event was a great way for students interested in this field to connect with alumni in the field and hear about several options in the healthcare field.
