Pavela Bambekova, MDUT Health San Antonio
Internship: UT Health San Antonio
San Antonio, TXI was born and raised in Bulgaria, and in 2004 my family immigrated to the United States and settled in San Antonio. Since then, San Antonio has been my home, offering tremendous opportunities. I went to Health Careers High School, UTSA (for undergrad), and UT Health San Antonio Long School of Medicine. Being accepted into our dermatology program was a dream that came true. During my free time, I am surrounded by my family - my loving husband (internal medicine resident), our baby daughter Sophia, our parents and siblings, and our two dogs (Spartacus and Lightning). To de-stress, I bake traditional Bulgarian bread or dance Bulgarian dances. Walking, site-seeing, traveling, gardening, photography, and film editing are a passion of mine. I plan on staying in San Antonio and practicing general and medical dermatology in an academic setting - either at UT or the VA, where I will have the chance to work with residents and medical students while I continue to be a life-long learner. A large part of my success is due to my amazing mentors, and my goal is to provide similar mentorship to those who want to follow in my footsteps.

Madeline Frizzell, MDTexsa A&M University System Health Science Center College of MedicineDallas, TXI’m a lifelong Texan but enjoy traveling and exploring new places when I get the chance. My favorite days are spent either hanging out at my grandparent’s lake house in east Texas, or sitting on a patio eating Tex-Mex and catching up with friends.I’m still exploring the different areas of dermatology, but so far I’m drawn to medical dermatology and dermatopathology.
McKenna Odom, MDBaylor College of MedicineAllen, TXWhile I've lived my whole life in Texas, I was also blessed to spend my summers in northern Michigan where I learned to sail, worked as a camp counselor, and gained my first exposure to dermatology. After completing undergrad at UT Austin, I went to medical school at Baylor College of Medicine where I met my husband. We are both completing dermatology residency here in San Antonio. You can find us around the San Antonio area walking our husky Akira, enjoying a good happy hour, wandering through the botanical gardens, or paddle boarding. We also love traveling , especially to national parks, watching sports (hockey, tennis, and F1 racing are our favorites!), and cooking up a good meal.Clinical dermatology
