About Black Man, M.D.

Why did I decide to create “Black Man, M.D.”?

  • To help crush negative stereotypes.
  • To help air my thoughts out as I happily trudge thru medical school and to share my ongoing story with whoever cares to listen.
  • To help keep me sane throughout this brutal, yet rewarding journey.
  • To help quell the fears of many students out there who have dreams of obtaining a medical degree, but don’t know what to expect in medical school.
  • To help create an online presence for men, especially minority men, looking to enter the medical field.
  • To provide a unique and not-too-commonly heard perspective of medical school.
  • To provide a more optimistic outlook of life as a medical school student, in contrast to the negative reputation it commonly receives from a large number of people.
  • To prove that you can still live a great and exciting life even as a medical student. No need to make yourself miserable.
  • To try and catalyze positive thinking in the minds of the readers.
  • To represent the fact that I’m a young, Black man working to become a physician as well as the fact that I’m just like any other medical student with a story and a background.
  • To hopefully serve as some type of inspiration to the readers, whether or not they want to enter the medical field.
  • To provide a source of genuine entertainment for both myself and the readers.

Now as for myself, I’m a first-generation American with Cameroonian roots. Born in Boston, raised in Virginia and attended college at the University of Miami. I am now a fourth-year medical student at the Wake Forest School of Medicine. How did I end up going from Miami to Winston-Salem you ask? Beats me. I’m just vibin’ on this ride we call life.

      Thank you so much Angelina! Your words mean a ton to me! Battling stereotypes is an uphill struggle and exhausting at times, but it’s important that we continue to fight them, no matter what!

    Came here from Imperfectly Dr. Jay! You have a great blog, I definitely agree that there is a huge lack of minority male in medical school online, you have a strong platform to share so use it your advantage! I am a medical student as well and I love what you have going here, good luck to you!
