Patient Simulators Help Save LivesThe new Rush Clinical Skills and Simulation Center uses sophisticated dummies to simulate real-world patient care — from serious heart conditions to the flu — for students and health care workers from Rush University Medical Center.
My main focus is reproductive health in women of all ages, young girls all the way up to post-menopause. So, anything that is happening with a woman that in uncomfortable or abnormal for her in terms of her human reproductive tract is where I hone in and I focus.
The vast majority of years that a woman is going to live her life, she’s going to be reproductively inclined and there are a lot of questions that patients have. So, my job is to really help to try and educate my patients so that they can make better decisions for themselves.
I really like to look at the whole person because after all you have to really focus on the whole person in order to really get at the underlying problem in any medical condition.
