  1. I have a wish. That when you called the ob/gyn medical office that it doesn’t take 15 days to get an appointment. I would like to make sure that every young women can be prepared to start her family when she has control over her own life. I believe there needs to be many more ob/gyns in The United States and I feel that a strong case can be made for the amount of medical professors in ob/gyn needs to increase. Now that the medical field has made so many new ways of birth control they need to be more available to people who need them. The amount of obstacles for patients to obtain proper ob/gyn health care is too large at the moment. In my perfect world there would be an abundant number of places and people ready to assist women in family planning. She would live in a world where she could access birth control everyday. In order for this perfect world to exist there needs to be more ob/gyn doctors. I would like it to be known and stated that there is a large need for a career in ob/gyn. Based on information gathered by William Rayburn, chairperson of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of New Mexico. There is a shortage of ob/gyn residents. I urge that more programs can be set up to ensure full staff coverage of womens health clinics in the United States. I am asking for a grant/internship to further clarify how this shortage can be resolved and to hopefully aid in the process to providing womens health care across The United States.
