WHAT YOU’RE DOING NOW
I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh. I am the Director of Communication Curriculum and core teaching faculty for the in the Internal Medicine Residency. I precept residents in clinic and also attend on ward teaching services. In addition, I am Co-Director for the Center for Transgender Health. I am actively involved at the medical school, and serve on the Curriculum Committee and as Vice Dean Liaison for Diversity to GME.
HOW DID FELLOWSHIP BENEFIT YOUR CAREER?
I think the single most important benefit was the professional development on how to be an effective faculty member and also on how to be a leader in academia. In addition, I developed my passion for transgender medicine during fellowship and may never have found that path if I did not complete the fellowship. I have always had a passion to teach, and the fellowship not only strengthened and expanded those skills, but also afforded me the opportunities to take leadership roles in education in order to be active in curriculum development and implementation. I have also developed skills from the fellowship to do medical education research and to further the science.
THE PEOPLE, the food, the cost of living, access to green spaces, proximity to many wonderful cities.
