Introduction to the Fields of Medicine

Hamid Kargbo

Senior resident and AU alum Hamid Kargbo at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center

What is the difference between an allopathic and an osteopathic physician? Between a nurse practitioner and a physician assistant? Do podiatrists do surgery? The answers to these and many other questions can be found in a new course, Introduction to the Fields of Medicine. This course will feature guest speakers from various medical careers who will discuss what they do on a daily basis and the education and preparation required to become a professional in their field. This class meets on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. each spring semester and is a great way to learn about careers in medicine.
