Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery
Why did you choose Duke for your fellowship training?
I was hoping to find a fellowship program that offered a wide variety of surgical training and clinical skills so that I would be comfortable handling any type of patient problem or surgery. I also knew that I wanted to go somewhere that encouraged me to push myself to become a strong researcher and academician. Duke offers all of that and more with the best mentors that the field has to offer.
What excites you about the fellowship program at Duke Obstetrics and Gynecology?
I am looking forward to further developing my surgical, clinical and research skills under the guidance of the Duke FPMRS faculty. I also look forward to further developing my teaching skills both in and outside of the OR.
