She was an outstanding student with consistently strong and complimentary evaluations during her clinical clerkships, receiving a nearly perfect score on her performance in Family Medicine.

Her Internal Medicine training was at Rutgers-Robert Wood Johnson where in addition to her clinical training, she was actively involved in research, looking at vitamin D deficiency in women with goiters. This work was presented at the 95th annual meeting of The Endocrine Society in San Francisco. Her letters of recommendation upon application to our program were superb, described as bright, enthusiastic, dedicated to learning and patient care, a wonderful team player, kind, compassionate, having an exceptional bedside manner and exceeding every expectation. She was given their highest recommendation. She has been in our training program only 4 mths, but it is already clear that she will become and outstanding clinical endocrinologist. She learns quickly, complete in her evaluation of patients, passionate about learning and has a delightful and warm personality. She will be preparing an abstract for presentation at the 2015 annual meeting of The Endocrine Society on composite pheochromocytomas and is expected to publish a review on this topic. We are very pleased to be working with her and to have her as a Friedman Fellow.
