On May 16, the outgoing chief residents presented the annual year in review, discussing projects they had worked on throughout the year. They also presented three “resident nominated and voted upon” awards.

Dr. Benjamin Sines presented the fellow award to Dr. Kenton Dover, who was described as incredibly intelligent, patient, a great educator, and always an advocate for residents in the MICU.

Dr. Alison Raybould presented the inpatient faculty award to Dr. Thelsa Weickert.

“This person has shown a fierce commitment to our trainees with a passion for teaching that few other attendings possess,” said Raybould.  “She’s always willing to help out with mentoring, teaching and career advice. She’s one of the reasons I decided to go into cardiology.”
