January 2019 - Brittany Black (PGY5, Obstetrics & Gynaecology)
Maritime Resident Doctors is pleased to announce Dr. Brittany Black, a PGY5 in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, is our latest Resident of the Month.
Our Resident of the Month award aims to improve resident well-being by recognizing and rewarding resident colleagues with exceptional achievements while maintaining a work-life balance. The criteria includes academic accomplishments, research activities, social events, family life, community involvement, humanitarian service, leadership, and more.
Dr. Black was nominated by her peers as a way to acknowledge her leadership, commitment to well being, and contribution to the community spirit of the OB/Gyn program.
"Brittany constantly espouses a positive attitude and embodies the sentiment that residency is a team sport," her nomination reads. "She is constantly providing mentorship and support to other residents and is regularly given feedback on her exemplary bedside manner."
The nomination went on to praise her ability to balance a busy resident schedule with preparing for her Royal College exams and family life, including caring for her young daughter.
"It is an absolute pleasure to work with someone as wonderful as Brittany and our residency program is lucky to have her."
As the winner of this award, Dr. Black will receive a $100 gift card.
Congratulations from everyone at Maritime Resident Doctors on winning this award.
