As medical professionals, it is our responsibility to train the next generation of physicians and clinicians. Experiences like the one below provide practical and realistic applications to learning medicine that tremendously enhance the student experience.

Last week, sixty “future docs” from the Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine visited DMC Harper-Hutzel and CVI. This tremendous career opportunity, done in partnership with the MSU School of Osteopathic Medicine, provided aspiring future medical students with “hands on” experiences in hospital education. 

Students who want to be either a physician, nurse, physician assistant, pharmacist or other health care professional, were exposed to the day-to-day expectations of professionals in these roles.

“We’re enormously proud of our Future Docs program and our partnerships with Ben Carson High School and the DMC,” says MSUCOM Dean William Strampel. “We are committed to activities like Medical Job Shadow Day that help connect Detroit’s young people with our students and graduates and expose them to the possibilities for careers in health care.”

The day’s activities included physician and other healthcare professionals/student interaction in the Emergency Department, Operating Room and Cardiac Catheterization Lab.
