Meet Our New Interns!
Meet Our New Fellows!
Fellow in Urologic-Oncology
Bogdana Schmidt was born in Kyiv, Ukraine and moved to Los Angeles with her family when she was eight years old. She completed her undergraduate studies and an MPH degree at UCLA before moving to San Francisco and starting at UCSF for medical school. Her graduate work focused on population and reproductive health and she was quickly drawn to the field of urology as a medical student. She loved the people she worked with, the diversity of pathology, and the patients she cared for and completed her residency training at UCSF. Her research interests include healthcare costs and delivery, use of novel technology in patient care, and survivorship and quality of life in patients with oncologic disease. She is an avid traveler, a culinary aficionado, and a former rock-climbing enthusiast (though it’s been a while since she’s been up), since she’s been busy as a mother of two little boys, Mattias and Martin who aren’t quite old enough to join her, yet!
Fellow in Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery
Jacqueline Speed grew up in Newport Beach, CA and received her undergraduate degree in Music from Harvard University. During college, she took a year off to volunteer and do clinical research at an HIV clinic in Santiago, Chile. There, she was struck with the reality of healthcare disparities and unequal access to care. She went on to do her medical training at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons where she was inspired to pursue urology. She completed her residency in Urology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in June 2019. Her primary interest is in voiding dysfunction and she hopes to liberate patients from catheters and diapers. Outside of the hospital, she is a music enthusiast (she plays the viola), loves the National Parks, and currently has her hands full with her very active 11 month old boy.
