Pathways in Medicine: A Conversation with Dr. Carlton Barnswell

Rilwan Babajide ’16 writes in to perpetuate the Western medical-industrial complex:

In this talk with renowned urologist Dr. Carlton Barnswell, students will learn about the wealth of opportunities available to them in the medical field. We will talk about where these opportunities are as well as how to approach them step-by-step. The objective is to provide interested students with a goal and a framework on how to achieve it.The reason for this talk is because in past years there has been a downward trend in the number of pre-med students from Wesleyan who have matriculated to the ranks of M.D.. Our goal is to change this and we believe that one of the ways to do that is by educating students about opportunities out there for them, instill goals in them, and teach them about the framework and strategies necessary to obtain those goals and achieve ultimate success in the medical field.
