Mentorship: Does one size fit all? with Dr. Ariela Marshall
The Medicine Mentors Podcast
Ariela Marshall, MD, is the Director of the Women’s Hemostasis and Thrombosis Program and the Associate Program Director of Non-Malignant Hematology fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. She is an international leader and innovator in practice leadership and medical education with a passion for mentoring trainees into positions at top institutions. Dr. Marshall completed her medical school from Harvard Medical School, residency in Internal Medicine from the Hospital of University of Pennsylvania and a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology from Dana- Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard. Often, the most challenging aspect of life for a new physician is achieving some semblance of harmony between the demanding career of medicine and a fulfilling, passionate personal life. Is it realistic to expect one mentor to relate with who you are and aspire to become on a personal and professional level? Join us for this episode and learn why Dr. Ariela Marshall firmly believes that “it’s rare to find a mentor for both your work and your life” and why you should be open to bringing mentors into your life that can each help you to overcome specific challenges. Pearls of Wisdom: 1. We need to discuss one problem or area of opportunity with one person rather than getting scattered. That's fundamental; rather than taking the same question to six people, find the one person who can offer the perfect solution. 2. Open up to your mentors. It doesn't have to be with everybody, but exerting effort to search for that person is essential; we'll be amazed at the similarities we’ll discover between us. Despite feeling alone sometimes, we’re not alone. 3. People exceeding your expectations are the people that you want to exceed expectations for.
“The only way that we can break down these barriers, that we can decrease the stigma associated with infertility is to actually talk about it” Dr. Ariela Marshall is an Associate Professor of Medicine & Hematology at Mayo Clinic, she joins us to discuss the issue of physician fertility. 1 out of 4 female physicians deals with fertility issues (1 out of 4!) yet this issue is barely discussed or worked on. Ariela co-authored an outstanding paper “Physician Fertility, A Call To Action”; we discuss the genesis of this work, the causes behind the issue and barriers to progress, as well as solid thoughts on moving forward.
