Suliman named July Fellow of the Month

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Mohamed Suliman, M.D., a first-year cardiology fellow was recognized as the Fellow of the Month for July 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.

Suliman, who recently completed a three-year internal medicine program at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine, was nominated by Eva Patton-Tackett, M.D., his former program director. 

“As an internal medicine resident, Dr. Suliman accomplished many things, including being inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society, serving as chair of the research committee and being nominated ‘Teacher of the Rotation,’” Patton-Tackett said. “In a large internal medicine residency program, third-year residents can truly impact the quality of a program. I could ask Dr. Suliman to help me in any way for the benefit of the program and he did it without hesitation. Cardiology was lucky to match him.”

A New York native, Suliman graduated from Avalon University School of Medicine in Curaçao prior to coming to Huntington for his internal medicine residency. After the three-year cardiology fellowship, Suliman plans to continue his training as an interventional cardiology fellow. As part of his recognition, Suliman received a plaque and designated parking spot.

“Dr. Suliman is the type of well-rounded trainee,” Wehner said. “He has a great clinical acumen and is also a caring and compassionate teacher. Dr. Suliman always graciously accepts any assignment we offer him and goes the extra mile to ensure it is completed well.”
