Apr 12 | Rotarian Medical Panel | 7-9PM | 156 Dwinelle

Members of the Berkeley Rotary club who have had professional experience in the medical field are coming to Cal on Friday, April 12th to host a medical panel for potential pre-med students. They will be talking about their work and answering any questions you may have about how to get into the field, specific experiences, and their thoughts on the process of becoming highly accredited professionals. Come prepared to learn a lot more about your future career paths from those who have gone through it themselves!

Speakers include:
Dr O’Neil Dillon received his undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley in 1962 and his Medical Degree from UC San Francisco in 1965. After a year of medical internship, he served in the U.S. Public Health Service assigned to take care of Peace Corps Volunteers in Malaysia. From 1968-71, he completed a Psychiatric Residency at UCSF and practiced many years in Berkeley. He also provided psychiatric services to prisoners in San Quentin State Prison. Dr. Dillon is currently retired from practice.

Dr. Marcia Dillon received her undergraduate degree from UC Berkeley in 1962 and her Medical degree from UCSF in 1965. After a year of Pediatric internship at UCSF, she practiced tropical pediatrics in Malaysia returning to do an adult psychiatric residency at Herrick Hospital in Berkeley and a child psychiatry residency at Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco finishing in 1977. She practiced adult and child psychiatry in Berkeley until just recently retiring from practice.

Dr. John Debenham received his Bachelor’s degree from UCSF in 1960 and his M.D. from UCSF in 1963.

He continues to see patients currently.

Dr. Caroline Schreiber received her undergraduate degree from Harvard College in 1995 and her MD from the University of Michigan Medical school in 2003. She was considered a “non-traditional” student, having taken four years off between college and medical school and doing her pre-med requirements. This is becoming more common and medical schools have come to appreciate students with work and life experiences have to offer. Dr. Schreiber completed a family Medicine Residency Program at Sutter Hospital in Sacramento in 2006. She has been Assistant Faculty in the Sutter Family Medical Residency, has practiced Family Medicine in Vallejo until 2011 and is currently practicing Family Medicine at The East Bay Family practice in Oakland.
