What Our Primary Care Residents Say About our Program

Why I Chose the PC Track

Becoming a mom during residency is challenging under normal circumstances. Finding out you are pregnant just as the COVID pandemic starts could have made it impossible, however our program and its leadership, were so supportive that I could not have imagined a better experience as a resident mom. The program always made it clear that the health of my baby and me was their top priority. They transitioned me to telehealth while we were figuring things out with COVID, particularly during the surges. My program directors insisted that I take a full 8 weeks to be home with my baby, which was invaluable time for us to recover and figure each other out. They arranged so that when I returned to clinical care I was on an outpatient rotation, that I had adequate support to continue pumping for as long as I wanted to do so, and that I could attend any doctors’ appointments that I needed to. My daughter, Genevieve, is welcome at most resident functions and very much enjoys being spoiled by her primary care aunties and uncles when she joins in! I cannot thank our leadership and coordinators enough for their continuous support and understanding!
