2016 Annual Residency Education Awards

Every year the graduating Emergency Medicine residency class selects award recipients to honor at their graduation ceremony. The 2016 graduating class held their ceremony on June 26th and presented awards that recognize and honor the best clinical educator, academic instructor, community physician, nurses, resident advocate, and consultants in the ED, as well as the ominous "Black Cloud" award, which exemplifies the faculty who seems to have a streak of challenging and difficult cases in the department on any given shift.
