Plan of the Week: July 17 - July 23

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to Dr. Connor Liggett for the first neonatal intubation of the year!

Play of the week also goes to Dr. Nicole Martin for hitting the ground running in the Adolescent clinic and being a great team player!

Play of the week to Dr. Alexis Ghersi and the social committee for planning a home-run social event to watch the Nats play!

Another play of the week for Dr. Brian Fissel, one of our alumni who is currently a flight surgeon at Naval Air Station Fallon, Nevada. See the picture of him above in front of the jet used to film the new Top Gun movie. He is "having the time of his life."

As a faculty Play of the Week, Dr. Hwang maximized learning time by leading an impromptu UAC/ UVC placement workshop using 3D printed umbilical cords (and two fresh cords from twins born that morning!)
