Alumni Physicians of Feinberg

APF: Bonnie Typlin, MD

Alumni Physicians of Feinberg Series

The Alumni Physicians of Feinberg (APF) is an innovative program that unites alumni and faculty with students who want to learn about the lives of physicians—how they made their specialty choice, what they actually do all day, how they balance work, family, and life, lessons they have learned, and what they would do differently. This is especially valuable to students who are making their specialty choice.

Each session is held in the Rubloff Building on the Chicago Campus. During the pandemic, this series pivoted to a virtual format. We are pleased to share the digital archives of these recorded conversations:

Dr. Rachel Issaka (9.29.2020) Dr. Paul Giboney (9.30.2020) Dr. James Lemons (10.20.2020) Dr. Connie Menella (10.28.2020)
Dr. Darren Wethers (1.12.2021) Dr. Christina Clay (2.1.2021) Dr. Steven Deitcher (2.4.2021) Dr. Connie Savor Price (2.25.2021)
