Sep 8, 2022, 17:00 PM by Dept. of Internal Medicine

This week at DOIM Grand Rounds, we recognized the Mark D Holden MD Challenges in Medicine Essay Awards.

Students are required to submit a reflective essay during the Year 3 IM Clerkship that addresses a challenge to patient care outside the complex biomedical issues of internal medicine. This can include issues of social detriments of health, end of life, healthcare rationing, truth telling, medical error and decision-making capacity.

At the end of the academic year the highest scoring essays are reviewed and selected to be honored with this award.

Please join us in congratulating this years’ recipients:

  • Roshaneh Ali – Numb and High
  • Carolyn McCrossan – Rationing Healthcare
  • Brittany Miles – The Implications of Social Support on Transplants
  • Shiloh Goeke – Approaching the End of Life
