Paying it forward

The best part of my job is having the opportunity to help to shape the future of the doctors coming forward: helping students to shape their careers, helping students who are having difficulties to address and deal with the difficulty and work through it; developing relationships working with our team in the Medical Education Office, and having the chance to work with faculty from across the medical school.

This is an institution where paying forward and helping future generations is really part of the values of the institution.
