Overlake Hosts 'Careers in Medicine' Physician Panel for Local High Schoolers

Bellevue, Wash. (March 15, 2016) – On Monday, March 14, 2016, Overlake Medical Center hosted a panel discussion called Careers in Medicine.

More than 125 high school students and parents, representing 14 area schools, had the opportunity to talk to and ask questions of Overlake doctors from a range of specialties about medical careers, education paths, a typical ‘day in the life’ of a specialist, and more. Overlake President and CEO J. Michael Marsh moderated the lively discussion.

“Inspiring students to pursue careers in medicine is something that is very important to us,” said Marsh. “There are so many exciting discoveries and medical advances on the horizon. The high schoolers who participated in today’s panel have the opportunity to be involved in an exciting and revolutionary era in technology and medicine.”

“Since I was 6 years old I’ve been interested in medicine. I take every chance I can get to learn more about it,” said Matthew Chaw, a junior at Eastside Catholic High School.
