Resident of the Month

The September Resident-of-the-Month award goes to 

Rehaan Shaffie!!!
Please join me in congratulating Rehaan for doing a fantastic job. 
Below are some comments about Rehaan 's performance:
 Rehaan … is calm and collective. He likes to educate, and is respectful to patients and staff.“
“Dr. Shaffie …..(is) very respectful to staff and great interaction with patients and families. “
“Rehaan has done an exceptional job on a floor known for its extremely high turnover and challenging patients. He has always communicated the goals, objectives, and priorities very clearly, which made our jobs much easier. He has always made himself available for help and questions. He has always maintained a calm presence on the floors and provided us with valuable insight regardless of how hectic the situation was…I felt comfortable discussing problems with him and was not afraid to ask for help when I judged a situation to require more attention.”
Congratulations to Rehaan and a big thanks to all our conscientious and hard-working residents who take great care of our patients day after day.  We have an outstanding program because of their dedication and commitment to learning and to excellent patient care. 
Please remember our “Resident of the Month” initiative which honors Internal Medicine interns and residents who have displayed exemplary service to our patients, colleagues, and educational mission.   Anyone can nominate one of our house staff for “Resident of the Month” by emailing
