Congratulations to Dr. Bobbi Batchelor, Resident of the Month!
Bobbi Batchelor, PGY5, Obstetrics & Gynecology
My name is Bobbi and I am one of the PGY 5 OBGYNE residents here in Saskatoon. What an honour it is to be nominated for the Resident of the Month!
I came to Saskatoon from UBC as a visiting elective medical student and have never looked back. I feel I have had the most incredible training here and I’m very grateful to all the wonderful people that I have met along the way and the friends that I have shared this journey with. I am very excited to be joining the Saskatoon OBGYNE department on successful completion of my royal college examinations, where I hope to continue making great memories, teaching and delivering many, many babies!
Here are some of the reasons that Bobbi was chosen as this month’s Resident of the Month (as quoted from the nomination letter):
“Bobbi is a fantastic example of what a resident should be. . . She is so incredibly easy to work with and does so much to improve the morale of the program and those around her.”
“She has always been very enthusiastic about teaching junior residents and medical students. As a result, her influence stems far - many residents and students are providing excellent patient care because of her teaching and guidance.
“The women of Saskatchewan are incredibly fortunate to have such a fantastic physician taking care of them, and we are all so incredibly lucky to work with her!”
The objective of this award is to promote resident well-being by recognizing and rewarding residents who make exceptional contributions, both in their academic field and in their extracurricular activities.
All RDoS members – with the exception of voting members of the RDoS Board of Directors - are eligible for the award, and can be nominated by anyone finding the resident deserving of the honour.
