Liz Falk-Hanson joined UHS in March of 2014 and works in both the Gynecology and Sexual Health Clinics. “The clinic is very comprehensive,” says Falk-Hanson, noting that students are oftentimes surprised by the breadth of care UHS offers. “It’s a combination of routine wellness and problem focused services.”
Falk-Hanson’s interest in women’s health began during her undergraduate career, where she earned a certificate in Women’s Studies. “I appreciated gaining a perspective on factors outside of medicine that have an impact on health,” says Falk-Hanson. She carries this into her work, taking a conversational and patient centered approach. “I’m here to help a patient figure out what makes the most sense for them.”
Working with an open-minded student population in an accessible environment are just some of the reasons Falk-Hanson enjoys her work at UHS. “Our sole focus is to meet the needs of the student and improve their quality of care,” says Falk.
Falk-Hanson enjoys hiking in her spare time and considers herself an amateur baker.
