Resident of the Month

Congratulations to March's Resident of the Month:  David Oh!!!

 David Oh
Firm 1, PGY1
Below are some comments made about David’s performance:

He was amazingly good at very complex assessments.  .… he managed to organize the chaotic record of (a complex patient) so clearly and so succinctly and so thoroughly and so intelligently….a real tour de force.  This was not an isolated event. He showed the same qualities in all of his work.”  

This month’s selection was very difficult, as we had many residents nominated with wonderful comments about their outstanding work. I would like to mention Ricklie Julian, Minghao Liu, Bradley Klein, Lucy Torres, and Daniel Morris.

We are proud of all of our hard working residents! Please take a moment to vote at
