Pathways to Healthcare – Spring 2023

It is a common misconception that working in the field of healthcare requires going to medical school. While medical school is necessary to become a physician, there are hundreds of other roles that exist in the field of healthcare, many of which do not require years and years of graduate schooling (or none at all).

Pathways to Healthcare is a recurring panel that features UConn alumni who are currently working in healthcare and did not attend med school, dental school, PA school, or nursing school. These fantastic alumni share insight on how they decided on their own career paths, what they did while still in college to gain experience, and how they transitioned into their current role post-graduation.
