Later this year, the UW Ob-Gyn Finance Committee will undergo a leadership change: Igor Iruretagoyena, MD, MS, professor and director of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, will become the new Vice Chair of Finance, effective July 1, 2023. He will follow Dobie Giles, MD, MS, MBA, associate professor in the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, who has been the Vice Chair of Finance since 2017. Please help us congratulate Dr. Iruretagoyena on this new role!

Dr. Iruretagoyena brings a great deal of leadership and operational experience to this role. In addition to leading a complex, active division for eight years, he has been a member of the UW Ob-Gyn Finance Committee since 2014 and the Clinical Operations Committee since 2015. In the last few years, he has also joined the Board of Directors for Generations Fertility Care and the steering committee for the UW Health Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center. These experiences have prepared him to be a highly effective Vice Chair of Finance.
