The mentorship I’ve enjoyed from some UIHC Ob-Gyn faculty has influenced not only my decision to enter this field, but also shaped the way I will practice in the future and given me reason to teach and mentor others. Finding faculty who really pushed me to be not just a better student but a more engaged health care provider, teacher, citizen and leader has cemented my career trajectory. I hope it will lead to richer experiences for the others that I work with along the way. Beyond what I have experienced in other departments, Ob-Gyn faculty at UIHC are doing the after-hours work of inspiring the next generation of women’s health providers. The value of this is incalculable, indescribable, and irreplaceable.
