Women in Medicine: Colette Bullock, DO | PCOM Georgia

In honor of Women in Medicine Month (#WIMmonth), we are excited to highlight a few women physicians on faculty at PCOM Georgia and share their inspiration and advice for others.

Meet Colette D. Bullock, DO, clinical assistant professor of internal medicine and director of internal medicine clerkships, who advises future women in medicine to "Choose your priorities and realize you can't give 100% of yourself to everything at the same time. Strive to be fully present in what you've chosen to engage in, and prioritize at that moment without feeling guilty."

Dr. Bullock takes inspiration from her mother, who progressed through several different stages of nursing at a very high level.

Dr. Bullock reflects on her experiences as a female physician, how she is creating change, and shares why it is important for women to practice medicine.

Women in Medicine: Andrea Mann, DO, FAAP | PCOM Georgia

During September, which is the American Medical Association (AMA)'s Women in Medicine month (#WIMmonth), PCOM recognizes our female physicians who serve as faculty members and role models for our students. Andrea Mann, DO, FAAP, serves as the dean and chief academic officer of PCOM Georgia's Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) program, and shares, "I strive to be authentic and honest with my students. I share my struggles and my vulnerable experiences. The road to get here was not an easy one for me. Other women need to know that. Everybody has hard times – I want other women to know that there will be difficult times, but if you are dedicated and put in the effort and commitment, you can achieve your dreams."

Student-Led Nonprofit Honored for Installing AEDs in Public Spaces

Founded by PCOM Georgia medical students Chris Griesser (DO ’23), Sara Lezcano (DO ’23), Rex Burch (DO ’23) and Tyler Richie (DO ’23), "Student Docs for Shocks" is an organization that works to increase survival for citizens who experience out-of-hospital sudden cardiac arrest (OHCA).

Chris Griesser (DO ’23), a former paramedic, explained, “The time between OHCA onset and initial treatment with CPR and an AED is critical to survival, specifically the first three to four minutes. If an OHCA victim is not treated during that time, the chance of survival is extremely low.”

This #WhiteCoatWednesday, we're thinking about our recent White Coat Ceremonies celebrating the physician assistant and physical therapy students in the class of 2023, and the responsibility they wear in their new white coats.

Courage, endurance, humility and kindness are qualities that Laura Levy, DHSc, PA-C, chair of the Department of Physician Assistant Studies, suggested that students keep at the ready, and we couldn't agree more — “they are perhaps the heaviest, but most important items to keep in your pockets,” she said.

I've only been here two plus years (PHYSICAL THERAPY Dept) and my hope is to never have to leave! Yup, I'm gonna be 97 years young, still puttering my way to, for me, THE BEST COMPANY AND EDUCATIONAL establishment I've been a part of.

    Hello, my name is Taylor Clarke and I'm a Mercer P1 student pharmacist. I also am an intern at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA). CHOA is in search for a few rising P1 interns(Class of 2023). This is a great opportunity for those who are interested in hospital pharmacy and an even better one for those who are interested in pediatrics! You will get exposure to many practices such as sterile and non-sterile compounding, unit dose, operating automated dispensing cabinets (Pyxis) and chemotherapy preparation to say the least! Additionally, this is a great networking opportunity. Please feel free to contact me at [email protected] if you are interested in pursuing this opportunity or have any questions.
    I've just recently been accepted into PCOM - Ga Campus and would love to connect/know if anyone is looking for a roommate starting in August! I am looking for a female roommate if possible. Thanks in advance!
    Hello, I am trying to contact Dean, Admissions Director or Marketing Director for your Graduate School. If you could have them email me ([email protected]) at their earlier convenience I would greatly appreciate it. Cheers! Chris
    Nice
    Are you interested in integrative medicine, but uncertain how offer it? Are you miserable because your are forced to practice medicine by the insurance rules? Are you burnt out and considering quitting medicine all together? After 13 years owning a successful solo concierge practice that includes OMT, we believe that we have the secrets to making docs more productive and happier, while getting better outcomes and greater patient satisfaction. We practice integrative and functional medicine in a membership style, cash-only practice, and now we are teaching our secrets for the first time. Our interactive seminar for healthcare practitioners AND their office staff offers the tip of the iceberg: teaching tips you can implement the next business day on how to add cash services to your suffering insurance practices including covered group visits, how to bill patients for non-covered services , or even how to convert to a full concierge membership practice. Following the on-site seminar, docs can expand their business acumen and learn more integrative medicine tips each month by joining our on-going e-courses and social media groups. Whether you just want to stick your toes in cash practice by trying a few tips, or you completely want to jump ship and go full-on cash only, we can teach the pearls and pitfalls for making that happen. Consider grabbing your favorite office manager or nurse and joining us in Atlanta, September 9, 2017!
