Pediatric Distinguished Students

Student Doctors Mohammad Khorsand and Shiree Segev, Pediatric Distinguished Student Award Recipients, Class of 2019

It is a great honor to announce the recipients of the prestigious Pediatric Distinguished Student Award for the Class of 2019. This year it was impossible to narrow the field down to only one. These two students demonstrated outstanding performance during their pediatric rotations, as well as supreme commitment to the specialty field of Pediatrics. 

Please join us in congratulating Student Doctor Mohammad Khorsand and Student Doctor Shiree Segev as our Distinguished Pediatric Students! I look forward to having them as colleagues in the field of Pediatrics soon!

Per the Pediatric Core Rotation Syllabus: “The Division of Pediatrics offers the Pediatric Distinguished Student Award. This award is designed to honor a senior medical student who intends to enter a pediatric residency and has demonstrated superior performance in his or her activities as a medical student. Pediatrics evolved as a specialty because children have unique physiologic, biochemical, and psychosocial needs which reflect dynamics of change during growth and development. The recipient of the Pediatric Distinguished Student Award should demonstrate a sound grasp of these concepts as well as skill in applying them to the care of children. Awardees should have completed their pediatric core clerkship and demonstrated exceptional ability and potential for future contributions to the specialty of pediatrics.”

Congratulations, Student Doctors Khorsand & Segev! We’re proud of you!
