What advice would you give OBGYN residents applying for your chosen fellowship specialty?
It sounds cliché, but follow your heart. If this is what you love, get after it! Bias opinion: It is the best job in the world, and such a privilege to be part of this community. Find a mentor(s) that will help you along your journey!
