    Resident Spotlight

    “I chose Morehouse School of Medicine because the people in my department are the best. We have excellent, down-to-earth faculty, and staff members who have a vested interest in our education and development as providers. I rotated with Morehouse as an away elective and loved the atmosphere and family friendly-nature of the Morehouse Ob/Gyn residents that I was working with”
