HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Farzad Amiri, M.D., a second-year surgery resident at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, has been selected as the August 2015 Resident of the Month.
In announcing the selection, Paulette Wehner, M.D., vice dean for graduate medical education, praised Amiri for his efforts in several areas.
“To be recognized by a medical student for your dedication, or your teaching ability or being a great physician is an honor by itself,” Wehner said. “Our August recipient was nominated for being all three – a truly dedicated physician, a great teacher and a great physician. Despite his busy and stressful schedule, Dr. Amiri takes the time to be a dedicated physician and teacher.”
Amiri is a 2012 graduate of the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine and completed his student clinical training in the United States. He earned two bachelor’s degrees – one in chemistry and the other in biology – from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton,Florida.
As part of his recognition as the August Resident of the Month, Dr. Amiri will receive items including a Certificate of Recognition and a designated parking spot.
