Beth Gottesman, MD '14: Recent Grad Spotlight 

 

Match day 1.jpgName: Beth Gottesman

Where are you from originally? Columbus, Ohio
 

Do you have any family members who are OSU Medicine graduates? My father, Martin Gottesman, class of 1977

Where was your undergraduate institution? Northwestern University


Where are you going for your residency and what is your specialty? Phoenix, AZ for Med/Peds, and I plan to specialize in pediatric endocrinology

Who was your mentor at the College of Medicine? Dr. Hitchcock (Department of Pathology) was one of my biggest mentors.

What are your most thankful for in regards to your College of Medicine education? I’m thankful that I was able to pursue anything and everything I wanted to, both inside and outside of school, and that I was supported in everything I did by everyone from students to faculty and administration.
 

What medical issues concern you the most? I am interested in treating LGBT patients, especially the transgender population. The LGBT community is not often thought of as an underserved population even though they have a difficult time finding physicians the trust, and I hope to be a compassionate, open-minded physician who welcomes everyone.

What advice do you have for students entering medical school at Ohio State next year who are interested in pursuing a career similar to yours? Don’t be afraid to spend time doing things that make you happy; the classroom is not where your medical education ends, and having other experiences will make you a better physician.

Most memorable moment(s) at Ohio State? It may be memorable because it’s so recent, but Match Day was amazing. The emotional rollercoaster from feeling anticipation to elation was so intense.

What does an ideal Sunday look like for you? Sleeping late, brunch with my boyfriend, exploring somewhere new in Columbus, and catching up on my DVR.

Hobbies? Volunteer work? I do a lot with Northwestern’s undergraduate admissions process, both interviewing high school seniors and attending college fairs.
