“A mentor is someone who sees more talent and ability within you, than you see in yourself, and helps bring it out of you.” — Bob Proctor.
In my 17 year career as a medical student, medical resident, and now as an attending physician, mentorship has played a critical role in all my career decisions. It has shaped me into the physician I have become and provided me with guidance and support essential to traverse the journeys of medicine, motherhood, and entrepreneurship successfully. In my mentees, I see my legacy in medicine. If I can do anything to help bring more bright and compassionate women and men to a career in medicine then I must. The health of our entire population depends on this. Dr. Joyce Imahiyeorbo-Ip
