Women and Children First: OB-GYN dedicates career to providing care to underserved population

John Heusinkveld, M.D., thought when he was a medical student that he didn’t want to practice obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN). So, during his third year, he chose the specialty as his first clinic rotation to get it out of the way.

But he was surprisingly pulled in that direction, and after graduating from VUSM in 1996 and completing two years of an internal medicine residency and a medical informatics fellowship, he did a second residency in OB-GYN in Tucson, Ariz.

One thing he has always been sure of is that he wanted to care for the underserved population.
