Resident Reporter


“… I considered the SASGOG Resident Reporter program an extremely valuable experience. I learned a lot, of course, as expected given the number of lectures and workshops throughout the day. But what made SASGOG special was the nurturing culture of a group with a shared vision.…The Society for Academic Specialists in General Obstetrics and Gynecology strives to create a network for academic generalists, and I left the meeting truly believing I had a place within this network.”
