- Harry Aung was complimented by a fellow for taking a great patient history that led to a diagnosis.
- Sumita Trivedi got a shout-out from the oncology clinic for being enthusiastic, helpful, knowledgeable, and loved by the patients.
- Nibal Rizk covered an additional two days of Jeopardy to maintain continuity over Thanksgiving, preventing another intern from being called in over a holiday.

- Demetria Smith and Deepak Ravindranathan were recognized by outpatient oncology for their clinical acumen, dedication to patient care, and participation in scholarship during their rotation.
