Nelson Alumni Society Professional Development & Wellness Residency

Nelson Alumni Society hosts First Annual Residency Career Day

On Wednesday, February 15, the Michael D. Nelson Alumni Society hosted the first annual Residency Career Day!

The residents were able to hear from many of our community physicians, starting with presentations from Dr. Makeba Williams, who spoke on career values as a physician. Dr. Diana Gray** spoke on the various academic tracks an ObGyn can take and Dr. Amy Heath-Carpentier brought more information from the WashU career center! They provided immense support and education for inspiring physicians. 

Thank you to the panelists for providing their guidance and support with questions! Your expertise and experience shined and made the day so bright!
