Campbell had originally planned to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. However, the death of his aunt during his freshman year coupled with a summer spent in a surgical research lab set him on a different path.

In spite of this, he has successfully completed 12 years of medical training and is ready to contribute to the greater good of the world.

Meanwhile, Campbell noted in a subsequent post that he is the first black advanced endoscopy fellow at Yale University.
