PGY III resident Dr Mohamed Sheta won overall best prize, as well as the medicine and cardiology prizes, for his research project analyzing the 6-month outcome data from Monmouth’s innovative new TIA Rapid Evaluation Center.
Unfortunately, Dr Sheta was not able present his outstanding data in person, but here are pictures of him presenting some of the same data at the 2013 International Stroke Meeting in Hawaii earlier this year (left) and also at the 2013 Drexel University Research Day (right):
Congratulations Dr Sheta!
PGY I-III residents Drs Martin Miguel Amor, Paavani Atluri, Alan Hamza (left and right), Michael Chan (right only) and Mohamed Sheta (above) won the best poster award.
One of their findings was that most acute stroke patients not given thrombolytic therapy because of too “mild” a neurologic deficit still needed in-patient rehabilitation, so we should probably lower our threshold for administering the drug.
Congratulations to them!!
We also had a neuroscience poster by PGY II residents Drs Nagakrishnal Nachimuthu and Michael Chan on an acute stroke case we have already featured on this blog:
We’re very proud to see our medicine residents so engaged in neuroscience research.
Keep up the good work!
