Pathway students get valuable experience

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Eight students are experiencing what it's like to be on the other side of the stethoscope, in the Pathway to Med School program.

The program is a collaboration of the Southwest Georgia Health Education center, the Southwest Georgia Family medicine Residency, the University of Georgia college of Pharmacy and Albany Area Primary Health Care. It gives students a chance to see what Med School might be like and allows them to shadow a doctor as a rising senior in college.

"Before coming here I was interested in pediatrics and I've thoroughly enjoyed my days when I was working with the pediatrician so that's definitely helped me want to pursue pediatrics," said Shayla Thomas, Spelman College.

"It's a fantastic experience it makes you fell like you can make a difference in somebody's life and all the things not told while I was in college about how to apply to medical school and what classes you need to take and what major you need to take you can impart some of that knowledge," said Dr. Tracy Rosenbaum, Preceptor.

Throughout the four week program students will get 160 hours of structured experience at 11 locations. Students will graduate July 30th.
