“The sense of community and family fostered within the RUSH OBGYN Program is truly unbeatable. Our nurses, residents, attendings, and clinic and OR staff all made coming to work feel like I am spending time with my friends (while providing excellent patient care!), and the training that we receive at RUSH has truly prepared me to be a new attending. I am proud of the doctor that I have become, and I owe it all to my RUSH Family!”

The community I became a part of as well as the hands-on training in evidence-based, patient-centered medicine transformed me into a better physician and person over the past four years.
