Plan of the Week: April 24 - 30

Play of the Week:

Play of the week to Drs. Anthony Lucido, Sarah Khan, and Katrina Savioli for expertly stabilizing two critically ill neonates, born in quick succession (an infant with moderate-severe HIE and an infant with a critical coarctation of the aorta). Shout out to Dr. Spencer Millen as well, who was on the cardiology team and helped evaluate the infant with the critical coarctation. See photos below for the team in action!

Congratulations to Drs. Brian Graziose and Sidney Zven for presenting their posters at the Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting in Denver, CO! Brian's poster was titled, "Impact of Residential Moves on Adolescent Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction," and Sidney's was titled, "Reduction in Hospitalizations and Changing Age Demographics of Respirator Syncytial Virus Disease During the COVID-19 Pandemic." Check them out below!

Congratulations to Dr. Brittany Flemming, who was competitively selected for induction into the Maryland Gamma Chapter of the Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) National Medical Honor Society at the Uniformed Services University. This is a lifelong honor signifying a lasting commitment to professionalism, leadership, scholarship, research, and community service. Well done, Brittany!

  • Email to set up a meeting time, with a morning vs. afternoon preference, if you would like a slot. Reasons to request a slow include:

    • You have an active ARM project but have not updated SOCR in the past 6 months - you must update SOCR with your project status to continue qualifying for two ARM days per block.

    • You have an upcoming research elective- SOCR will oversee your research elective and needs to approve your proposal for how you will utilize your time during the elective.

    • You are a senior resident or rising senior resident who would like a second ARM half-day per block, and would like to discuss ideas for a project or have a project to propose.

  • Ensure the appropriate supporting documents (ARM project proposal or Research Elective agreement- linked below) are completed.
