Dr. Benjamin Carson : Dr. Benjamin Carson “…it makes you into a more valuable person. The more knowledge you have, the more people need you. It's an interesting phenomenon, but when people need you, they pay you, so you'll be okay in life.” – Benjamin Carson, on knowledge Slide 2: Benjamin Carson was born in Detroit, Michigan on September 18, 1951. He was primarily raised by his mother with his older brother, Curtis, after his parents divorced when he was eight years old. His mother, Sonya, dropped out of school in third grade. Even though she was not very educated, it was very important to her that her sons take advantage of their education. Benjamin was at the bottom of his class in fifth grade when his mother decided it was time to do something about his lack of interest in school. She enforced limitations on the amount of time him and his brother spent playing outside and watching television. They had to read two library books a week and write a report on the information. A few weeks after they began this system, Benjamin surprised his peers by identifying rocks that the teacher brought in to class. He recognized them from a library book he had read recently. He said it was at that moment that he realized he wasn’t stupid. Slide 3: Throughout middle and high school, Carson was one of the top students in his class. After graduating high school in 1969, he attended Yale University on an academic scholarship. He graduated from Yale with a degree in Psychology in 1973. He then went on to the University of Michigan School of Medicine to pursue his dream of becoming a doctor. It was there that he became interested in neurosurgery. Slide 4: After medical school, he began his resident training in neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. At age 32, he became the hospital’s youngest Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery. In 1987, Carson became the first doctor to successfully separate Siamese twins. Both of the twins can now survive independently. Slide 5: Dr. Benjamin Carson is still the Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery. He is also the Co-Director of the Johns Hopkins Craniofacial Center and a Professor of Neurological Surgery, Oncology, Plastic Surgery and Pediatrics. Slide 6: Bibliography Megan Stephenson A4
