Angela Aboutalib, MD National Director of Quality for US Acute Care Solutions / Integrated Acute Care. Medical School: St. Matthew’s University School of Medicine West Bay, Cayman Islands Residency: Internal Medicine West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, IL Dr. Aboutalib has been practicing as a hospitalist and teaching attending physicians for the past few years. She earned her medical degree at St. Matthew’s University School of Medicine in Grand Cayman and completed her residency at West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, IL. Dr. Aboutalib is a member of the Leading Physicians of the World. In 2014, that group presented her with the Top Internist in Chicago award. She is also a member of the American College of Physicians  & Outside of the hospital, she enjoys various hobbies, including yoga, Pilates, traveling the world, and baking. A dynamic conversation about her multicultural and overseas medical school attendance will eventually, after perseverance, accomplish her dream of becoming a physician in the US. Her IMG story is one of many in which, despite the road limitations and life intricacies, she overcame and got ahead professionally and became a successful internist specializing in Hospital Medicine.  We discuss the amazing option for an FMG / IMG on what is to become a Hospital as a long-term career path. In general, the USA has a significant shortage of doctors specializing in Hospital Medicine. Companies like hers are always on the lookout for motivated physicians with the desire to explore a pathway in this specialty. Hospital Medicine could become a fantastic option for Family Medicine Specialists, Internists, and Pediatricians alike, which allows an advantageous and flexible career choice, especially for women who also want to pursue a life as mothers in their household while having a structured, predictable work practice. Enjoy our episode together; it is an amazing story to be heard! Thanks again, and don’t forget to share! Best of all, Your coach and mentor,  Alonso Osorio, M.D.
