PROGRAM DIRECTOR

Suzanne Y. Bush

After graduating from UAB School of Medicine, Dr. Bush completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Sacred Heart Hospital Pensacola and Tulane Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana.

In the years after residency, she maintained a relationship with the residency as adjunct faculty but turned her main focus to establishing a private practice. Within five years, she became the managing partner and guided her group into a 10-provider group with nearly 50 employees. In 2002, Dr. Bush was approached to return, part time, to academic medicine to help start a new medical school at Florida State University with a regional campus in Pensacola. That role soon expanded to teaching the resident physicians along with her duties as the Clerkship Director for OB/GYN for the undergraduate medical education in the panhandle of Florida. More recently, Dr. Bush redirected from private practice and is focused on academic medicine, adding the role of Educational Director in Obstetrics and Gynecology for the six FSU campuses. Along the way, she has won teaching awards in both medical student and resident education. Her current focus is teaching adult learners clinical reasoning skills and meaningful feedback techniques. Both interests have been nationally recognized in faculty development seminars. Although she is passionate about teaching general obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Bush has additional certification in Menopause Medicine. She became a North American Menopause Society Certified Menopause Practitioner (NCMP) in 2006 and loves to educate anyone who will listen on the topic of health issues in women of midlife and beyond. When not teaching, she loves mentoring young health professionals at any stage of their career. You might also find her in her garden.
