Shout out to R1 Dr. Pokala! You know you’re doing a great job when your attending tries to change your career path!! 🙂
“Dr. Pokala was placed on emergency residency on call for the CF/PH service. I thought he had a good attitude regarding losing a weekend day off, he prepared as if he would continue to follow the patients for several days, asked questions, followed up on lab test, and I felt he gave his best for my patients.
I feel this is a sign of an exemplary resident, and I want him to know it was greatly appreciated.
I know he is interested in heme/onc, but I hope he would consider pulmonary critical care instead one day. ”
