Attending of the Month

October 2020

Attending of the Month for October is Riss!
The residents have nominated you “Attending of the¬†Month” for October!

Some quotes from the nominating residents:

Riss! Always makes an effort to teach although he does it in his own unique way. ūüôā

“He’s gone out of his way to teach,¬†refining the way I look at a lot of medical¬†problems. He’s shown time and time again that he’s¬†committed to teaching and¬†he has¬†gone out of his way to help me¬†improve certain skills (e.g. blind subclavian central lines). I’ve grown under his guidance and appreciate him¬†challenging me to work¬†independently.¬†“

“He truly¬†cares about the¬†residency program. Also, lets not forget about his countless Dunkin runs and all of the coffee and donuts we’ve enjoyed because of him.”


August 2020

Attending of the Month for August is Deniece Boothe!
The residents have nominated you “Attending of the¬†Month” for August!

Some quotes from the nominating residents:
“She is an excellent teacher and incredibly patient with us interns. She takes a lot of time out during the shift to explain not only management but clinical pearls that can help facilitate patient management and our education. I look forward to working with her again and was shocked to see she is not core faculty”
“She’s been an incredible resource, and I hope sometime soon she will return to be core faculty.”

July 2020

Attending of the Month for July is Irving Chung!
The residents have nominated you “Attending of the Month” for July! They appreciate the time you take to educate on shift and go through board style questions during down time. They feel your dedication to the residency and find working with you constantly adds to their education.

Some quotes from the nominating residents:
“Chung always takes the time to teach even when things are crazy, very approachable, learn a lot from him even by observing how he interacts with patients, great role model”
“I would like to nominate Dr. Chung. He makes an effort every shift to teach on a topic or go through board review questions. It is clear how open he is to questions and discussion, i.e. talking through cases as a team rather than an attending who is telling you what to do or pimping you (sorry, lack of a better word). I definitely feel working with him adds to my education.”
