On June 4, the Department of Medicine (DoM) at UCLA celebrated an important milestone as their senior resident class graduated from their residency training. The other big graduation event on campus was the David Geffen School of Medicine commencement on Friday, June 3.
DoM faculty were well-represented amongst the honorees which were selected by the medical students and faculty.
Dr. Dale Abel, chair of the DoM, highlighted the awards that were received by house staff and faculty in his chair message to the department.
Dr. Abel recognized Dr. Arleen Brown, professor of medicine in the division of general internal medicine and health services research (GIM and HSR) at the UCLA, for receiving the Wilbur S. Schwartz M.D. Prize for Kindness, Compassion, and Humanity:
"Awarded to a physician who has demonstrated to their patients and to fellow physicians the qualities of extraordinary kindness, compassion and humanity to patients in their delivery of medical service and treatment for which Dr. Wilbur Schwartz was known."
Attendees celebrated Dr. Brown and other colleagues for their achievements and contributions.
CTSI is thrilled to congratulate Dr. Brown, our CTSI co-director, for her well deserved award!
