Career Lunch and Learn: Medical

Career Lunch and Learn: Medical

Upper School students at University School of Milwaukee were invited to attend the fifth and final career lunch and learn program of the school year, in which students have the opportunity to dine with leaders and industry experts to learn more about specific fields of employment. 

This career lunch and learn, held on Monday, May 15, covered the field of medicine. It featured Dr. Rick Strickroot, urgent care physician with ProHealth Care; and Dr. Azita Hamedani, chair, Department of Emergency Medicine at University of Wisconsin – Madison. Strickroot and Hamedani spoke to students about their paths to medicine, ways for students to differentiate themselves when applying to medical schools, and trends in medicine. Medicine is a challenging career and requires extensive training, and is best suited to individuals who have a strong desire to help people.

The previous lunch and learn events featured attorneys, entrepreneurs, engineers, and business leaders. All Upper School students were invited.

Both the lunch and learn events and the resume and job interview workshops were sponsored and organized by USM’s Internship and Shadowing Committee with support from the school’s Parents’ Association. Any individuals interested in speaking at future events should contact for more information.
