Quotes from our Students

“We love Dr. Budinetz! She makes the topics of infertility and genetic disorders less intimidating! Also provides great advice on test taking skill." - SP

"Engaging, did a GREAT job of stating which slides/info was the most important/must know, good job answering questions especially in regards to putting info into practice” - KB

“Great, highlights key points, summarizes the topic at hand." - KN

"One of the best days of the course, along with the first day! Great lecturer, good job explaining difficult topics. Awesome question review at the end. Great with staying on time." - WL

"Amazing lectures! I learned more today than I did my entire REI rotation. She is so passionate about her work. Her lectures were easy to follow and she kept me engaged." - RB

"I always hated REI because if was difficult to understand. I am not sure if it is because she is an amazing lecturer or the fact that I am older and more mature and struggling with infertility, but I finally get it. I finally understand the endocrinology portion of REI.  I think it is because of Dr. Budinetz.  I feel like I can finally answer those hypo-hypo or hyper-hypo questions confidently rather than guessing like I did in the past.  It also helps that she is pregnant, because she respected our need for breaks. I greatly appreciated that.  This day was probably most beneficial to me.” - DR
