Attending of the Month

January 2021

The first Attending of the Month for 2021 is Dr Bove!
The residents have nominated you “Attending of the Month” for January!

Some quotes from the nominating residents:

“He does an excellent job of “year tailored” teaching and expectations. Bove understands how to empower residents to their potential and teach to their year of residency. Although we do not have a graduated responsibility/expectation structure – meaning from day one you get all the procedures and difficult patients – he understands what to expect from each year of training and gives then offers the appropriate balance of autonomy and oversight/guidance with insight on how to get to the next level.”

“He teaches, monitors, and evaluates residents with seemingly ease and enjoyment. He fills knowledge gaps, goes out of his way to teach you something; and gives good feedback, constructive criticism, and praise at the end of shift. I argue he does this better than anyone at joes and he does this while handling his own Wayne ‘disasters’!”

“He shares his passion for EKGs during shift and during ECG nights, and his knowledge is impressive. He is a humble teacher and leader in this residency program, deserves this award as much as anybody.”

Congrats Bove, well deserved!

December 2020

Attending of the Month for December is Dr Vlasica!
The residents have nominated you “Attending of the Month” for December!

Some quotes from the nominating residents:

“Always looking for pain management pearls to teach you, has significant knowledge in the field and is a pleasure to work with.”

“We love her teaching style, how she guides you through the procedures and takes time to teach and give tips for doing better, and also does the “scut work” making the whole process more enjoyable and smooth.”

“She does not mind “taking the grenade” for her residents by taking the difficult or mundane patients, leaving the best learning experiences for the residents.”

Congratulations Dr Vlasica!

November 2020

Attending of the Month for November is Miguel Reyes!
The residents have nominated you “Attending of the Month” for November!

Some quotes from the nominating residents:

“Whenever he is around he finds ways to teach. Outside of teaching clinically, he’s been an integral part of the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion committee, coming out to screenings and educating us on how to advocate for our patients.”

“Really hope we get to keep him!”

“Always looking for opportunities to add knowledge and fill in gaps. Down time is full of lessons. His effort towards self-improvement is very apparent, and refreshing. Great stuff to come from him!”

Congratulations!

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. 🙂

“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.”

Well deserved!

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.”
