September Inpatient Resident of the Month
“She was an amazing senior resident on the CCU! Always kind, patient, and advocated for our learning experiences. She also had one the best bedside manners I’ve ever seen and explained complicated subjects in an extremely eloquent way. Even though there were times she had to come in for a night shift right after day-time fellowship interviews, she was able to perform at a top-notch level and guided us through all of our complicated and sick patients.”
“Kaitlyn is the epitome of a senior resident: kind, compassionate, and supportive while allowing us to thrive as interns. She provides the perfect balance of autonomy and support. More than a senior, she treated us like family. Being in the CCU also has its emotional challenges but Kaitlyn always kept checking in on us to make sure we were doing well. She made this month one of the best I’ve had so far and I am lucky to have worked with her.”
September Inpatient Intern of the Month
“He did an outstanding job as an intern in the MICU this month. He was prepared, delivered excellent daily presentations, and, more importantly, provided excellent patient care. He independently handled several very difficult end of life conversations with family members. He exhibited compassion, empathy, and sound medical knowledge. He was a great person to work with on this very stressful and grueling rotation.”
“He truly recognition for his all-star performance in the MICU. Not just because he nailed his first trialysis line and LP (champagne tap!), but because he embodies the ideal combination of strong work ethic, intellectual curiosity, efficient and organized task management and empathetic patient care.”
“He is able to comprehensively work up some of the most complex patients in the MICU and present organized and thorough H&Ps. His oral presentations are always clear, concise and really demonstrate his clinical decision-making skills. He effortlessly helped execute the very complex care plan for a patient with invasive fungal sinusitis, and was instrumental in coordinating care between numerous consulting services. He creates an independent plan for all of his patients on a daily basis, and did not require much oversight at all. He remains calm and collected in moments of pressure. For an intern on his first rotation in the MICU, he demonstrated a nuanced understanding of goals of care above his level of training, and was able to help significantly with end of life discussions with families.”
September Outpatient Resident of the Month
“She saw one of my patients in the PCMC. While it would have been easy to quickly go through the motions of seeing a patient that wasn’t hers, she spent the time explaining the importance of various medications and the reason for undergoing specific tests. She even got my patient to schedule a colonoscopy and mammogram, and take a daily blood pressure log. My patient raved about how great she was at explaining things, and I wanted to recognize her for her great work.”
