Each July 1, hospitals around the country are flooded with eager newly minted physicians. New interns are learning how to be doctors. New residents are learning how to take on a more senior role and teach their interns while leading a team. New fellows are learning how to see the big picture while also learning the intricacies of their specialty. New attendings are learning how to put everything together and take on the ultimate responsibility of being the final decision makers with their patients. It is an exciting time!
About Shikha Jain, MD FACP
I am a practicing, board-certified hematology/oncology physician in Chicago. I speak on topics ranging from the impact of social media on healthcare, how physicians can utilize social media, how to write Op-eds in the medical world, gender equity and barriers to career advancement, and topics in GI oncology and immunotherapy. My goal is to explain complicated topics in simple terms. I also enjoy writing and you can find some of my writing on this site. I am a mother to three amazing kids and married to a gastroenterologist. I look forward to connecting with you.
