Q & A with Dr. Ekaterina Golovko

How did you get into Pediatrics?
Since my childhood, I have always enjoyed taking care of the children in my family, being around kids, and seeing them grow and thrive. During my adolescence, when it was about the time to choose my future career, I was hospitalized at a pediatric university hospital. I felt the caring attitude and empathy of the people who worked there. This made a great impact on my future and I felt that pediatrics was my calling. A few years later I was accepted to the same hospital as a first year medical student.
