What is it like to be an emergency room doctor? Or to run a hospital? That’s what students from area high schools found out yesterday when they spent the day at Botsford Hospital.
Students from Redford, Dearborn Heights and Westland signed up for the special event so they could hear from doctors, administrators and clinicians what it’s really like in their world.
The room was packed and Botsford delivered with nearly 20 speakers, including Botsford president and CEO Dr. Paul LaCasse, vice president of human resources Barbara Palmer and emergency room doctor Jacklyn McParlane, D.O.
Each speaker talked about their career choice, job duties, their education and also gave inspiring insights into choosing the right career path. Speakers also took a variety of great questions from the students, some of which were live-tweeted. Here are a few highlights of the advice students received:
