They are there. Page cardiology? Page CCU? They are there.
Who are they? The Cardiology Residents!
Over the past year, we have all experienced significant changes to our workplace. There are multiple new protocols to learn and follow, ever changing bed maps for our patients, and many layers of protective gear to navigate. Residency is already a challenging time, trying to acquire as much knowledge as possible to ensure exam success while working a full time job plus on-call responsibilities and then an added unprecedented pandemic!
Our residents in cardiology have graciously risen to the challenge. They are our frontline staff without whom we would not be able to provide the exceptional level of care that our patients receive. They are an outstanding group of professionals who are not only the Sals Stars of the Week but are our stars of the past year and are most deserving of this recognition.
Congratulations to our annual Teaching Award Winners!
