Reflections Hear what Slotnick Fellows Have to Say

Elizabeth (Whaley) McClure, MD

Chief, Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Associate Medical Director of Specialty & Service Lines,

Sutter Medical Group, Sacramento, California
Fellow, 1987

Being a Jim Slotnick Fellow was truly life changing. It was a gift to work with clinicians who shared the same passion in caring for their patients and who were very free 
in sharing that passion with medical students. Working at the LA Free Clinic was a refreshing change from the more traditional teachings of medical school. It was there that my conviction in the power of educating my patients to share in the success of their medical care was formed, ultimately leading to my choice of careers as an Obstetrician/Gynecologist. Caring for women during the most intimate experiences of their lives has been a true privilege and much of who I am as a clinician can be traced to my time as a Jim Slotnick Fellow.
