Obstetrics / Gynecology Resident, Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital – Chicago

2011 Major: Sociology

Tiffany is pursuing a career in women's health as a generalist and continues to be a part of organizations and efforts to diversity medicine. She currently works at Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital in Chicago, IL where she is completing her obstetrics/gynecology residency. She graduated in 2016 from Loyola University School of Medicine where she completed an honors track in bioethics.

"Earning my degree in sociology from Duke University prior to matriculating into medical school allowed me to view medicine in a different context than many of my peers. Many of the classes I chose to take at Duke centered around the social determinants of health and the ramifications of society on either people's access to health care or how they interface with the health care system. Now as a resident at a community-based residency program I am often confronted with these realities and I believe that my undergraduate education has helped me as I navigate through my program."
