2018-2019 Symposium


Different Paths

How careers unfold.

For Conversations in Medicine this year we really wanted to focus on speakers that could provide valuable and unique insight about how you would want your medical careers to potentially unfold. Hence, I am very excited to announce our first event of the year on September 18th in the Charles Commons Barber Conference room at 5:30PM - Dual Degrees: Surgery and Research. 


Dr. Andrew Cameron is the Chief of the Division of Transplantation Surgery here at Johns Hopkins Medicine. He completed his undergraduate education at Harvard College, before coming to Johns Hopkins where he obtained his MD and PhD degrees. He then went back to Boston to complete his surgery training at Massachusetts General Hospital and then at UCLA for Liver Transplantation. He has been the head of the Liver Transplant Program here at Hopkins since 2006. His laboratory studies stem cells and the liver to  promote drug free transplantation and other pursuits include the use of social media to increase organ donation. We are very lucky to have him take time out of his busy schedule to speak to us. He will be giving a short talk about his experiences as a surgeon as well as leading a research lab, followed by Q&A.
