About this program:

This event is the seventeenth in a series covering different professions.  The concept is to have a diverse panel of doctors at different stages in their careers and in different areas of medicine, who will provide candid views of their profession.  Our three panelists  represent  differing perspectives:   a prominent pediatric surgeon, a former dean of a leading medical school, a leading radiologist, and a young doctor early in her career.

The panel discussion will be conducted simultaneously in New York City and at Yale, with the panelists and the moderator in New York. The two meeting rooms will be connected via video conference and the audience will be at both locations. Yale students and alumni are welcome to attend at either location. In addition, the panel discussion will be broadcast over the internet as a streaming video for those who cannot attend in person


The three panelists are:

Stephen E. Dolgin, M.D., Professor of Surgery and Pediatrics at Hofstra NS-LIJ School of Medicine (Yale 1971).


Nathan G. Kase, M.D., Professor, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Science; Professor, Department of Medicine; and Dean Emeritus, The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (former Yale Medical School Professor).


Hannah Hoffman, fourth year medical student at Hofstra North Shore LIJ School of Medicine. (New York University).


Topics will be:

  • Where is the profession heading (good and bad)?
  • How do you get into the profession and what is the typical career path?
  • What are the myths versus the realities?
  • What are the characteristics of people who tend to do well and are happy in the profession?
  • What types of people tend not to do well or end up unhappy and why?
  • If you don't stay in the profession until retirement, what are the exit routes to other professions?
