Newest Group of Medical Resident Presented at White Coat Ceremony
Memorial Healthcare System's Graduate Medical Education (GME) program presented its newest group of residents at a white coat ceremony in Pembroke Pines. The offering of the lab coat signifies entry to the next phase of medical training and recipients also recited the Hippocratic oath, a traditional statement of a doctor's obligations and conduct. 47 physicians joined the program and will train in seven different specialties (internal medicine, pediatrics, physical medicine and rehabilitation, podiatry, general surgery, neurology, and psychiatry).

"There were more than 5,000 applicants for the 47 spots in this year's class, so the quality of our residents is outstanding," said Saima Chaudhry, MD, VP for Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer at Memorial Healthcare System. "There is great demand for our training and history shows many of our doctors will remain in South Florida after their residencies, meaning there will be additional specialists to care for a growing and aging population."
Doctoral Candidates Receive Louis J. Elsas Research Award in Biochemical Genetics
Two University of Miami Miller School of Medicine doctoral candidates, Zachary Silver and Yi Zhu, are the recipients of the 2019 Louis J. Elsas Research Award in Biochemical Genetics for their innovative genetic research into neurodegenerative disease and HIV. Sixteen candidates applied for the honor this year, which remembers the legacy and contributions of the late Louis J. "Skip" Elsas, MD, a geneticist who became the first director of the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Center for Medical Genetics, now known as the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Department of Human Genetics. The award, which provides $2,500 for each recipient, supports outstanding medical students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows who are performing research relevant to biochemical genetics, biochemistry, genetics, genomics, statistical genetics, or genetic epidemiology.
