Institute, Alumni Physicians Discuss Pre-Med Track with High School Students
September 26, 2013
Over 100 Great Lakes Bay area high school students and family members got an insider’s perspective on preparing for the medical profession during an Albion College-sponsored program on “Thinking Ahead to a Career in Medicine” Sept. 25 at the MidMichigan Medical Center-Midland. The program included a panel discussion with four alumni who are now practicing physicians in the Saginaw/Midland area, and a presentation by staff from the College’s Institute for Healthcare Professions.
Participating in the panel (pictured in first photo above, left to right) were physicians Majed Sahouri, ’88 (ophthalmology), Great Lakes Eye Institute, Midland and Saginaw; Douglas Forsyth, ’86 (family practice), Chesaning; Andrew Wagner, ’85 (obstetrics/gynecology), Saginaw; and Samuel Shaheen, ’88 (general surgery), vice chair, surgical disciplines, Central Michigan University College of Medicine, Saginaw. Together with Barbara Keyes and Marikay Dobbins from Albion’s Healthcare Institute, they offered advice on the most valuable learning experiences for students planning a medical career.
