The purpose of this video is to tell you all a little about who we are and the overall goal of the channel. We discuss where we are from, why medicine is dope, interesting facts about us, and ultimately to pipeline young minority youth into the field of medicine.
We all started medical school summer 2018 not sure of what it would entail but determined nonetheless to succeed. The African American male presence in medicine is rare, and we knew that we were blessed with the opportunity to be on this journey together. Understanding that there are many minorities who aspire to pursue a career in medicine we decided to start a YouTube channel to create an authentic experience for them and show them that medicine is possible. Representation matters, and often times you do not know who you can be until you see someone you relate to in that position. We are normal people who do what the average 26 year old would do in Houston, Seattle, and New York.. we just happen to be in medical school. Our plan is to keep it real explaining our paths to medical school, pro tips on how to succeed, and ultimately to show products of similar environments who look like us, talk like us, listen to the same music and dress like us that medicine is pretty wavy!
