Resident Recognition!

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. ”

Way to go Nagendra!!
