Meet Dr. Singleton
Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Camilla, Georgia, a small rural town in southwest Georgia.
Where did you go to medical school?
Medical College of Georgia
What inspired you to be an OBGYN?
During the summer after my first year of medical school, I conducted an educational research project with the Department of ObGyn that focused on developing a surgical simulation model. I had several incredible ObGyn mentors who guided me throughout this research project and continued to mentor me throughout medical school. I saw in these mentors the type of physician that I wanted to be one day. I realized that being an ObGyn would allow me to be a primary care provider, surgeon, researcher, women’s health advocate, and educator. I am so excited to have the opportunity to train at UNC and learn from such wonderful teachers!
Why did you choose UNC ?
I had the wonderful opportunity to rotate as an AI at UNC in Gynecologic Oncology. On my first day of the rotation, I was immediately struck by how kind, compassionate, brilliant, and FUN all of the residents were. The collegiality within the program was palpable, and I woke up everyday so excited to work with my team. Furthermore, everyone – residents, fellows, and faculty – were invested in my education. As a medical student I felt as if I was an integral part of the healthcare team providing care for our patients. When I finished my AI, I knew that UNC was the place where I wanted to be for residency. It truly is a dream come true to be back at UNC as a resident! I am so incredibly excited for the next 4 years!
What you are most excited about during residency?
I am so excited that I get to spend the next 4 years surrounded by such an incredible group of people in such a supportive learning environment. My co-residents are some of the most remarkable people I’ve ever met, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to care for the women of North Carolina alongside them.
