Sloane named May Resident of the Month

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Emily Sloane, M.D., an obstetrics/gynecology resident, has been selected as Resident of the Month for May by the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, announced Paulette S. Wehner, M.D., vice dean of graduate medical education at the school.

“One important aspect of training residents is the emphasis on promoting patient safety and quality improvement in the clinical learning environment,” Wehner said. “Dr. Sloane has provided exceptional leadership for the House Staff Quality Improvement Committee over the past several years, including providing guidance for our Quality & Safety Poster Day. As a result of her leadership, several patient safety projects have been implemented. We are truly appreciative of her efforts.”

Sloane is completing her fourth and final year of the OB/GYN residency at Marshall. The Maryland native earned her undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of Maryland in Baltimore. After completing her residency training this June, Sloane will join the department of obstetrics and gynecology at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine as an assistant professor.

“Dr. Sloane is completing her chief resident year and has been a reliable member of the program for her entire career,” said Kevin Conaway, M.D., obstetrics/gynecology residency program director. “She is a skilled and reliable physician, a role model to her junior residents and compassionate to her patients. We all enjoy working with Emily and are proud she is joining our faculty next year.”

As part of her recognition, Sloane received a plaque and designated parking spot.
