Plan of the Week: February 18th - February 24th

Plays of the Week:

This was a hard week to decide what photos to put near the top, it was a really exciting week for NCC Peds! It was Valentine's Day, so had to go with our Cardiology team.

Play of the week to Dr. Marianna Caballero, and her research mentor Dr. Hickey, and Dr. Taylor Meyers, and her research mentor Dr. Madison, who presented posters at the AMSUS Conference this past week.

Play of the week to Dr. Emily Ferraro and Dr. Samantha Hanciles, who did a great job of managing an interesting and complex Ward census. They are the only Pediatric Residents on service and are coaching up our new Anesthesia Interns. Way to set an example.

Additional play of the week to MS4 Andy Greenhalgh, who delivered an excellent morning report case on the differential and workup of Adolescent Acute Psychosis. Multiple staff members said it was one of the best medical student presentations they have ever seen. Great work!

Congratulations to Dr. Kayla Sallander and her husband Cam on their wedding this weekend! I hope you get some time to relax. Very happy for you both.

Big weekend for the Hepps/Manison Family, Maryn Manison had her Bat Mitzvah yesterday and I heard did a great job! Congratulations to her, and we hope our PD can get some well deserved rest and relaxation!

Ms. Denisha Herndon, will be our new Program Coordinator, and is starting March 11th! Ms. Herndon comes to us with over a decade of experience as a Program Specialist at the Washington DC VA and as an MSA at Malcolm Grow.  While military GME will be a new area for her, she is enthusiastic about meeting all of you and contributing to our residency team.
