Ben Carson students learn how to prepare for medical careers


On Oct. 5, a group of students from Benjamin Carson High School attended a field trip to Plymouth United Church of Christ for a premedical planning seminar. Students had a chance to talk about their futures as medical students. The session was designed for high school or college students or parents of students interested in becoming a doctor. It was an opportunity for students to receive hands-on information. Speakers included Silas Norman, dean of admissions at Wayne State University School of Medicine, and Patricia Wilkerson-Uddyback, vice president of medical affairs at Harper-Hutzel Hospital.
