Deborah Rubin, M.D.

Professor of Medicine

Dr. Rubin has been a faculty member at WUSM for 25 years while raising 2 children.   She looks forward to sharing her and her physician-scientist spouse’s experience with others who face the same challenges.  She believes having a steady full-time baby-sitter/nanny has been invaluable, as it offered flexibility and support at home.  She tried to do work at home only when the children were in bed so that family time was always quality time.  Car-pooling and building a network of friends and family to call on was also a big help.  Constant attention to improving efficiency and organizational skills helped her to preserve time for daily family dinners and children’s activities.
