Brooke Benton, DO | Fourth Year Resident
I wanted to find a program where the faculty, staff, and residents are close knit. I also intend to work in the Appalachian region after residency, so it was important to me to train at a program that is serving the Applaclachian population. I am very invested in caring for underserved women and their families and I felt that the mission of this program aligned very closely with my personal goals.

My mission of meeting women's health needs in rural Appalachian regions is well-aligned with ETSU OB/GYN goals of providing care for this area. My heritage is deeply rooted in this mountain community and I intend to practice in the area.

The smaller program and city attracted me, as I grew up in a small college town and always loved that atmosphere. The surrounding hills, forests, and mountains are beautiful and I look forward to hiking and exploring the area.

Morgan Brock, DO | Third Year Resident
I chose ETSU Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency program for so many reasons! The number one being that I wanted a place where the faculty and residents are a close knit, supportave team, and I found that here. I plan on working in the Appalachian area after residency, so I wanted a program that was familiar and worked with the population. During my interview day, the residents and faculty were so friendly and welcoming, it just felt like home. Lastly, I love living in the mountains.

Caroline Bulger, MD | Third Year Resident
Having gone to medical school at ETSU, I knew the program well. The patients and the faculty here were a huge part of why I fell in love with this specialty. The residents always gave me so many opportunities to learn and made me more confident in my clinical skills. When choosing a residency program, I knew I would get all of the training I needed to become the compassionate and capable OB/GYN I amined to be by choosing my home program

Emily Holton, MD | Second Year Resident
I’ve spent my entire life in East Tennessee and couldn’t imagine calling anywhere else home. I loved my OBGYN rotation at Quillen and became even closer with the residents and attendings during my fourth year elective rotations. When I matched at ETSU, I truly felt like I had joined a family, because almost all the residents reached out to me immediately to welcome me to the program.

Meghan Olson, MD | Second Year Resident
I chose ETSU for the opportunity to work with a rural and often underserved patient population. I’m very interested in the overlap between OBGYN and mental/behavioral health, and ETSU was one of the few programs I found that trained residents in medication assisted treatment in pregnancy. Plus, East Tennessee is beautiful, and you could not finder a nicer or more supportive group of people to train with.
