Dr. Nicole Bentze is the kind of doctor you hope to have when you need one. Compassionate. Caring. Smart. Devoted to her patients and dedicated to her students.
She’s a role model for the special type of medical professional that her team strives to create at the regional campus of the Florida State University College of Medicine in Sarasota, where Dr. Bentze is the new dean. Board certified in family medicine by the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians, Dr. Bentze is highly trained in preventative medicine, adolescent care, women’s health and management of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. Following medical school in Philadelphia, she did her internship and residency in Harrisburg, Pa., later working as a faculty physician for the Harrisburg Family Practice Residency Program, where she taught and mentored residents-in-training. Dr. Bentze also completed a competitive post-graduate primary care faculty development fellowship at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine in medical education and curriculum design.
She is both prepared and thrilled to take the reins as FSU dean, looking to educate and inspire future doctors and put everyone on a track to success.Read Full Article
