Meet Anna Shope, M.D., Gynecology & Maternity Care Provider | UW Medicine


ANNA SHOPE: I think
that, at UW Medicine, I can take care of women
regardless of their background or economic status. I can help anyone with
whatever they need, in terms of their women’s health care. And I also get to help train
the next generation of OB/GYN physicians. And that’s something
I’m really proud of. I think that, historically,
women’s health care has been neglected. And I think that women, more
and more, are becoming– as they should– more important
members and participants in society. And their health care is of
the utmost importance to me. And I wanted to focus on that. I think the thing that is
so rewarding and special about my job is, really, the
individual interactions that I have with women–
with human beings. I think that there
is something really special about the
doctor-patient relationship and the connections
that I can have to try to help their life
in some way become better. And that, I think, makes
everything better in the world.
