The Department of Family Medicine would like to congratulate Dr. Daniel Pepe, a Family Medicine resident in the PGY3 Academic Family Medicine program, on receiving two prestigious resident teaching awards.
Dr. Pepe was recently recognized with the OMA Resident Achievement Award for his outstanding contribution to the advancement of postgraduate training, and the PARO Resident Trust Fund Teaching Award for providing outstanding clinical teaching experiences to junior residents and clinical clerks.
"It is truly humbling to receive these honours and awards. They speak volumes to the help I have received over the years and are a testament to my incredible mentors, both within and outside of medicine, who have guided me in my residency," said Dr. Pepe. "Most importantly, I am certain that without my amazing wife, Cassandra, and our son, that none of this would have been possible as they have been the biggest support network imaginable."
The OMA Resident Achievement Award is awarded annually to one resident from each of the six provincial medical schools for outstanding contribution to the advancement of postgraduate training. Nominations may be made by university professors, teaching faculties, the OMA Section of Interns and Residents, and PARO. Dr. Pepe is the Western University recipient for 2018.
The PARO Trust Fund provides an award of $1,000 each to two winners from every university centre in Ontario. The award acknowledges two senior residents who have provided outstanding clinical teaching experiences to junior residents and clinical clerks. The winners are also invited to the PARO Clinical Teaching Awards Banquet, traditionally held in May.
Congratulations Dr. Daniel Pepe.
