Abstract

After being exposed to all facets of medicine, I have found Obstetrics and Gynecology to be the most challenging, artistic and amazing field in medicine. The University of Iowa Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program shaped my personality to become a successful academic obstetrician and gynecologist. With the confidence built at the University of Iowa, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology I saw Fetal Surgery/ Maternal Fetal Medicine as an opportunity to combine these two passions and I did it, thanks to my residency program at Iowa.

Keywords: Obstetrics, gynecology, Iowa, residency training
