Q: Why did you become a doctor/reproductive endocrinologist?
I remember my anatomy professor in medical school asking my class of 400 students this question on my very first day of lectures. He handed out a shred of paper and had us write down the reason we were starting on this long journey of training asking us to keep this little note throughout our careers. On mine is written “fascination human being.” It sits in a little box on my desk, but I never had to take it out as a reminder since that first day in medical school. The human body has never failed to amaze and fascinate me. Fascination for something I do the majority of my week provides a good foundation to find fulfillment and joy in my work. I do not dread a Monday morning.
