HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Mose July, M.D., has been selected as the February 2016 Resident/Fellow of the Month at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.
July is in his second and final year as an endocrinology fellow. The endocrinology fellowship, which is completed after three years of an internal medicine residency, trains physicians in the care of patients with a variety of endocrine problems such as diabetes. Marshall’s endocrinology fellowship is the only one in West Virginia.
Paulette S. Wehner, M.D., vice dean for graduate medical education at Marshall, says July was nominated for the award by the endocrinology faculty members.
“It is rewarding to receive a nomination like Dr. July’s that indicates the fellow’s clinical performance has been phenomenal and that he has shown rapid growth in his acquisition of medical knowledge in his specialty field of endocrinology,” Wehner said.
Omolola B. Olajide, M.D., who serves as program director for the endocrinology fellowship, noted on behalf of the faculty that the this month’s recipient “demonstrates a high level of initiative and goes above and beyond in the management of his patients ... he is very hardworking, efficient, humble and is always ready to help and go the extra mile.”
July completed his internal medicine residency at New York Medical College - Metropolitan Hospital in New York. He received his medical degree from the University of the West Indies Faculty of Medical Sciences in Jamaica and was awarded a pre-med/Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Botswana.
As part of his recognition, July will receive items including a certificate of recognition and a designated parking spot.
