Plan of the Week: October 15th - October 21st

Plays of the Week:

Play of the week goes to the Recruitment Committee, Dr. Alexis Ghersi, Dr. Emily Ferraro, Dr. Amy Davis and Dr. Nicole Martin, as well as all other residents who helped with our excellent recruitment season that ends today. Everyone really went above and beyond showing off the program, answering questions, and planning events for our MS-IVs. I think we have a really great pool of applicants this year and are in a great position for the coming year!
