From the Director

OMG! Last week of our amazing chiefs! You all got to see Drs Jessica Regan and Dennis Narcisse CRUSH IT at Grand Rounds on Friday and this week we can’t wait to see Drs. Nancy Yang and Michael Burt do an equally amazing job.  Please be sure to stop by their offices and thank them for keeping this place intact for 365 days in a row.  Unprecedented.   We had an awesome time climbing the chapel with them and some SARs plus Dr Boggan and Jessica Nipper on Friday.  A new tradition! Which of course means I gotta climb it every year….

Thanks to all who came out to celebrate the chiefs at the Chief Picnic on Saturday!

 

Kudos

Kudos this week to Felicia Cao on a fantastic SAR talk, to Londyn Robinson from Nandita Singh for patient centered care on 9300, and to Dennis and Jess from Daniel Travis for putting the “grand” in grand rounds.  Big kudos to our first group of med res award winners, including Nathan Hirshman for the Bruce Dixon Award, Dan Loriaux for the “favorite fellow” award, and our faculty Drs. Dennis Abraham, Venu Reddy and Caroline Sloan for the Stead, VA and DRH teaching awards, as well as Dr. Jenn Rymer for the research mentoring award.  More awards this week, so stay tuned.

Also huge congratulations to Tingrui Zhao on his engagement!

This week’s pubmed from the program goes to Michelle Ferreira for her publication: Ferreira, M., Rao, M., Shariff, A. Top 10 tips for managing immune-mediated endocrine toxicities for palliative care physicians. J Palliat Med, 2022

Have a great week, get ready to welcome those new chiefs next week and new interns coming up!!!
