Dr. Trout Named Assistant Clinical Professor
University of Colorado recognizes Colorado Reproductive Endocrinology Doctor Susan Trout for her efforts in teaching the next generation of physicians
Denver CO, May 14, 2012
In recognition for her teaching efforts in working with medical residents, the University of Colorado has named Colorado Reproductive Endocrinology physician Dr. Susan Trout an associate clinical professor.
This appointment will further allow Trout to pursue her goal of educating CU medical students by working with them first-hand in class and with clinical procedures.
Trout said she is looking forward to continuing to teach the next generation of physicians.
“I am delighted that the residents I teach and the CU medical staff has given me this tip of the hat,” Trout said. “I love being a teaching doctor, so this appointment means the world to me, and I look forward to building on the teaching work I have already done.”
A fertility doctor, Trout has herself gone through the heartache of not being able to have a baby of her own, which she says has given her a more personal connection with her patients.
“I see myself in my patients all the time; I went through the same struggles and the same uncertainty,” she said. “It has made me a better doctor every day.”
Trout received her undergraduate degree from Johns Hopkins University before moving on to graduate with a doctorate of medicine from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. Trout completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, New Jersey. She then completed a reproductive endocrinology fellowship at the same school before joining the faculty full-time to see patients, teach, and do research. She remained part of the UMDNJ faculty until 2001, when she joined a large private fertility medical practice called RMA of New Jersey.
Desiring the more intimate one-on-one patient experience offered by a smaller medical practice, Dr. Trout left her job at RMA of New Jersey in 2002 and moved to Denver to join the staff at Colorado Reproductive Endocrinology.
Dr. Trout is board certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, as well as obstetrics and gynecology. In addition to writing research papers, Trout has at times been a regular contributor to Fertility and Sterility, the journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.News
