Professor, Chair, and Clerkship Director
The Ob/Gyn faculty, during my core clerkship and elective rotations, were among the top physicians I had the pleasure of learning from in my clinical years of medical school. The department has a friendly atmosphere and the physicians I worked with answered questions about the specialty which piqued my interest even further for the specialty. I never felt alone during the process of applying for residency.Cooper Love, MS4
I distinctly remember coming home after completing my second day of the Ob/Gyn rotation and telling my family, "This is the one!" My love for the specialty continued to grow throughout the eight-week clerkship, and I am a firm believer this was due to the amazing faculty and staff I had the privilege of working with each day.Mikaela Herberg, MS4
