DOM Fellows’ Council
Thank you to the DOM Fellow’s Council for their ongoing efforts to establish stronger connections between all trainees in DOM subspecialty programs! The council has been engaged in monthly fellowship Program Director meetings and in planning both social and professional events for trainees. Gayathri Krishnan, MD and Julie Byington, C-TAGME were recently selected to present a poster at the upcoming SGIM Regional meeting that focuses on the implementation and ongoing efforts of the council. We congratulate the council on their successes and look forward to their future initiatives!
