Faculty Mentoring Program

Who Mentored You?

Karin Vargervik, MD

Dr. Karin Vargervik was my main mentor during the two year fellowship in the Center for Craniofacial Anomalies and continues to be my mentor now when I am junior faculty here at UCSF. She has been a great source of inspiration for me to pursue an academic career dedicated to the care of children with clefts and other craniofacial anomalies. She has taught me not only clinical aspects of care but has also helped me establish my research career and my overall professional career development. Her dedication to her patients and to the students and staff has been exemplary and her passion for the care of craniofacial patients has given me a path to follow.
