Plan of the Week: Apr 30 - May 6th

Updated: May 1, 2023

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to Dr. Greenwald, who was selected as the NCR Faculty Teacher of the Year for 2022. Here is just one of the many glowing remarks he received, "Dr. Greenwald may be an institution, but he is one for a reason. He took every opportunity possible to teach, let me learn with patients and procedures, gave honest feedback, and pushed me to learn more every day. One of the most impactful and inspirational medical educators I've worked with."

Play of the week goes to HA Flores for obtaining a quick replacement TCB machine in clinic when there was a malfunction and to HM3 James for subsequently fixing the clinic's TCB machine!

All Staff Updates

Intern Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA) Volunteer

  • We are still looking for volunteers for the upcoming Intern CSA which is scheduled to take place May 8-10th.

  • For those of you who may be new or new to the Intern CSA, this event is a half-day of simulated patient encounters during which interns are directly observed by faculty and provided specific, educational feedback. We have done this for many years in conjunction with the Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC) residency program. Each faculty is assigned to observe 5-6 individual interns from Walter Reed or CNMC conduct a specific simulated clinical encounter with a standardized patient/family. You will receive guidance about your specific clinical scenario ahead of time. General pediatricians and subspecialists are all welcome.

  • Please email Dr. Cassie Carr ( if you are interested in participating, the sessions are:

    • Monday 8MAY2023 1200-1730

    • Tuesday 9MAY2023 1200-1730
