Resident of the Month

The August Resident-of-the-Month award goes to 
Linda Wang
Please join me in congratulating Linda for doing a fantastic job.  
Below are some comments about Linda's performance:
"Linda cares deeply about her patients and works tirelessly to ensure that they are receiving the best possible care. She inspires those around her to do the same."
"Linda managed an incredibly busy floor, supported and advocated for her interns and routinely stayed late to help ensure that sick patients were appropriately cared for during transitions.  Her clinical reasoning and maturity were far beyond what one might expect from a resident in the beginning of her 2nd year. She was absolutely outstanding! "
 " Smart, hard-working, humble, excellent fund of knowledge, always evidence based, she is truly wonderful in every aspect."
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
