Alumni in Healthcare Industry Impart Professional Perspective

More than 25 alumni working in healthcare jobs, including eight medical students from the John A. Burns School of Medicine at UH Mānoa, shared their personal and professional experiences with Academy students at the annual Alumni Healthcare Spotlight in October. 

The evening began with a candid panel discussion with the medical school students in Cornuelle Lecture Hall moderated by student leaders. Student participants asked questions about courseload, rigor and paths to medical school admission. 

The evening concluded with small group breakout sessions with alumni professionals.

The Alumni Healthcare Spotlight event began in 2016 and was initiated by students from the Surgery Club. Alyssa Roberts ’17, then a junior, was one of the original student planners. Now a medical student at JABSOM, Roberts was part of this year’s alumni panel. The event is popular with both students and alumni, many of whom return year after year as mentors.
