Yale Career Panel: Medical Profession

Join us as we hear from a diverse panel of doctors at different stages in their careers and in different areas of medicine that will provide candid views of their profession. Our three panelists represent differing perspectives: chief of a hospital division and a professor, a physician and editor, and an analyst and internist.


•    Where is the profession heading (good and bad)?
•    How do you get into the profession and what is the typical career path?
•    What are the myths versus the realities?
•    What are the characteristics of people who tend to do well and are happy in the profession?
•    What types of people tend not to do well or end up unhappy and why?
•    If you don’t stay in the profession until retirement, what are the exit routes to other professions?

The panel discussion will be broadcast via an interactive streaming video platform that will allow Yale students and alumni to ask questions of the panel and interact with each other. There will be a 45 minute networking period after the one hour panel where all of the attendees can see each other and mingle. 

This event is the 58th in a series of events covering different professions and career issues. There have been 47 Yale Career Panels, 9 Yale Career Fireside Chats, and 1 Yale Career Conversations events. Organized 11 years ago by a group of Yale alumni volunteers, these panels strive to provide candid, unvarnished views of featured professions.

The volunteer organizers of the Yale Career Panels are Justin Kosslyn ’09, Julie Sohn ’14, Trish Takemoto ’76, and Peter Young ’74. This panel was organized by Trish Takemoto.
