As each academic year concludes, we like to recognize and celebrate those residents who have made extraordinary accomplishments throughout the year. The graduating residency class also nominates a faculty member who has made the biggest impact on their clinical training, and a residency-wide vote is held to award the annual outstanding teacher award. We are delighted to announce this year’s residency award recipients as well as the Outstanding Teacher award recipient.
Necita L. Roa Award recipient:
Karl Kristiansen, MD
Selected by program leadership, the Roa Award recognizes a member of the graduating resident class for their citizenship, essential attributes, and contributions to the program.
Peter E. Krucylak Award recipient:
Dan Fernandez, MD
Selected by the cardiothoracic anesthesia faculty, this prize recognizes an outstanding 3rd year resident in the area of Cardiothoracic Anesthesia.
Leonard W. Fabian Award recipient:
Christian Guay, MD
Presented to the outstanding first-year resident, who was voted on by all of the Anesthesiology Department Faculty. The recipient represents the ideals of the Department; professionalism, commitment to high academic standards, as well as clinical performance.
Outstanding Teacher Award:
Preet Mohinder Singh, MD
Dr. Singh joined the faculty in August 2018 midway through the graduating class’s residency training, but very quickly distinguished himself by way of his encyclopedic knowledge of human physiology, pathophysiology, and pharmacology, but more importantly his calm demeanor and constant eagerness to teach. Outside of the clinical arena Dr. Singh is extremely well published and has worked with three of this year’s graduating residents on research projects.
Congratulations to all the recipients and our graduates!
