Should Pre-Health Students Be English Majors?

Thursday, May. 3, 2012

The best preparation for a career in medicine may be a degree in the humanities. That suggestion by author Abraham Verghese, this year's DeNardo lecturer at SCU, will be the focus of a panel discussion today at noon in the Wiegand Center. The panelists are all highly regarded SCU faculty who work closely with students pursuing careers in health care.

-- Stephen Carroll, SCU English Department

-- Steven Fedder, SCU Chemistry and Pre-Health Advisor

-- Lawrence Nelson, SCU Philosophy

This event is being done in coordination with the DeNardo Lecture Committee.
