SIU Med School Recognizes Area Physician as “Mentor of the Year”
Dr. Rebecca Hartman has been recognized as the “2007-08 Mentor of the Year” for her work as a volunteer mentor to first-year medical students in Carbondale at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine.
The medical student nominating Hartman said in the nomination – “She has a sweet and friendly disposition that was comforting not only to her patients but also to the anxious beginning medical student. She enjoys teaching and helping students know what is important. She is an exceptional mentor who provided me with an invaluable experience.”
A gynecologist, Hartman has been in practice since 1984 and is now based at New Horizons Group Practice in Carbondale. She is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She completed her obstetrics-gynecology residency at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine in Lansing, Mich. Hartman and her husband, Barry Wesley, have two children and live in Murphysboro.
SIU School of Medicine provides the clinical mentor program for its first-year students in Carbondale. Sixty area physicians served as mentors this last school year. Hartman was one of 20 nominated for recognition.
