Resident of the Month

I am pleased to announce the July Resident-of-the-Month award goes to…….. Maudry Laurent-Rolle.
Below are some comments about Maudry’s performance:
“Maudry thought deeply about complex cases. She formed a very nice relationship with patients and families…. She even did extra research that was useful to augment the treatment plan for the patient.”
This was an extremely difficult decision this month, as there were so many nominations, attesting to the great teamwork and patient care we provide to our patients at both campuses.  Thus, a shout-out goes to the following:
Jonathan Cheah
“Big” Benjamin Koo
Eugenia Tsai
Dana Assis
Teena Charalel
Venkatesh Alapati
Norman Roth
Hamid Lari
Mat Kladney
Aurada Cholapranee
 Please join me in congratulating Maudry and the other residents for doing a fantastic job.  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
