“I feel extremely privileged to work with Dr. Bathon,” says Dr. Chung. “As a highly accomplished researcher, she has extensive mentoring experience with many medical students, fellows, and junior faculty members at Hopkins.” In addition to her academic work, Dr. Bathon also serves as editor-in-chief of Arthritis & Rheumatism.
As a result of this exciting work, Dr. Chung has now authored two abstracts, submitted a manuscript, and is currently working on another manuscript. In addition to her research guidance throughout the preceptorship, Dr. Chung expresses her appreciation for the advice on career development and personal growth offered by Dr. Bathon. “The benefits of the preceptorship have gone beyond my time as resident. Now, I am a first-year fellow in the Division of Rheumatology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.”
