Elizabeth Pedersen, MD
Dr. Pedersen is an accomplished Orthopedic Surgeon in Canada. She discovered, after pursuing multiple fellowships to pad her competency resume, that it was confidence that she needed, and eventually gained in her training. She learned that resilience lies in knowing what you want, and asking for it. She has stayed resilient by re-creating and re-invigorating her life, through a work schedule that she designed for herself, and through coaching other women physicians to have confidence and ask for what they want.
