HUNTINGTON, W.Va.— Jesse N. Cottrell, M.D., a resident in the department of obstetrics and gynecology, has been selected as the March 2016 Resident of the Month, announced Paulette S. Wehner, M.D., vice dean for graduate medical education at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.
Wehner said the southern California native was nominated for the award, in part, for his outstanding demeanor.
“Dr. Cottrell’s nomination reflects a truly remarkable individual,” Wehner said. “His integrity as well as his studious, dependable and mature nature along with his team mentality were characteristics highlighted by those nominating him. Everyone commented that he will be a wonderful credit and valuable resource to his chosen field of obstetrics and gynecology.”
