Klara Vogel, M.D., F.A.C.O.G. knew early in her life that she wanted to be involved in medicine. By eighth grade she was volunteering in the local community hospital in the Labor and Delivery ward. “I love working with and helping women, enjoy staying up-to-date on scientific research, and working with my hands.” As a medical student at the Mayo Clinic her teachers and mentors solidified her interest in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

She was recognized by Medicine for Humanity with an award for “Ethics and Humanism in Medicine”.
