WHAT YOU’RE DOING NOW
I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago. I am a clinical educator with a traditional mix of inpatient and outpatient medicine. A large part of my work at the University is building our women’s health clinical and education programs. During the last 3 years I have founded our Women’s Health Core Faculty, integrated LARC into primary care, direct our Primary Care Women’s Clinic and built the Women’s Health curriculum for the residency. My next major project is working closely with the residency leadership to launch a women’s health track for our internal medicine and med-peds residents.
HOW DID FELLOWSHIP BENEFIT YOUR CAREER?
I simply would not have this career without the skills I learned in fellowship. Navigating an academic career can be complicated and is not always intuitive. The professional development skills and mentorship I had in fellowship was essential for launching my career and I fall back on those skill constantly as I continue in my journey through academic medicine. The mentors I met at UPMC are lifelong friends and advisors and an extremely valuable assets of fellowship.
Pittsburgh is the greatest city – that is all you need to know. While my current home is Chicago, Pittsburgh one of my favorite places in the world. The people, culture and spirit is really like nowhere else.
