Women of Rochester Pediatrics

In Their Own Words

by Nancy Wharton Bolger

  • Description
  • Contents
A helpful road map to a future successful career through life stories shared by a group of distinguished university women, all professors of Pediatrics at the University of Rochester.
In this inspiring collection of life stories, distinguished women pediatricians reflect on how following their passion for caring for children has led to satisfying and successful careers in the vibrant, ever-changing arena of academic medicine. While some were challenged by a bias against women physicians, themes of optimism and confidence shine as each tells her story.

The career paths of these women are as rich and varied as their diverse backgrounds. Several lead federally funded research teams. One is internationally known as a major figure in the "Back to Breastfeeding" movement of the 1960s. Another partners with engineering faculty to create miniature medical devices for newborns. Some are deeply involved in community and international health issues, while others work at the national level to determine how best to teach Pediatrics to medical students in this era of rapid technological andsocial change.

Throughout the stories runs a strong connective thread. These doctors discovered at the University of Rochester an environment where their skills would blossom and where they could create satisfying lives for themselves and their families, while working to improve healthcare for the world's children. The strategies they used to overcome old barriers and meet new challenges make this a useful handbook for those looking for a career in any profession.

Nancy Wharton Bolger is a writer and editor associated with the University of Rochester Medical Center.
