Career Breakfast on Periodontics and Orthopedics

Date: 
Tuesday, December 1, 2020

On Tuesday, December 1, two talented alumni - Dr. Vinay Bhide '93 and Dr. Fahim Merali '06 - joined our second online Career Breakfast as guest speakers and shared their insights in the Periodontics and Orthopedics professions with our current students and parents from the Prep and Upper School community.
 
What great advice from two of our alumni for students interested in pursuing medical career paths.  "Doing what you love is freedom. Loving what you do is happiness." It was clear from Dr. Bhide that he does what he loves and loves what he does. He introduced us to the periodontic field of dentistry and the functional and cosmetic transformation that it provides to his patients. He also shared how his practice is also a business and as such provides the ability to be your own boss and create the lifestyle you desire, though you are also responsible for the financial sustainability to your employees. Dr. Merali echoed the same message. His advice to students - don't do it if your heart isn't in it, sometimes you might feel like you're flying by the seat of your pants and that's okay, you need to take care of your mental health, and finally, and most importantly, be kind. This has helped him grow his network and build his reputation among colleagues and administrators and has led to further career opportunities. He shared how his own career path allowed him to continue to learn as family medicine is a great career path that provides avenues for growth.
 
The last Career Breakfast of the school year is scheduled for Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. to be held online via Microsoft Teams. Please stay tuned for more details. We look forward to seeing you at our next Career Breakfast.
