In announcing the selection, Dr. Paulette Wehner, vice dean for graduate medical education, praised Amiri for his efforts in several areas.
“To be recognized by a medical student for your dedication, or your teaching ability or being a great physician is an honor by itself,” Wehner said. “Our August recipient was nominated for being all three – a truly dedicated physician, a great teacher and a great physician. Despite his busy and stressful schedule, Dr. Amiri takes the time to be a dedicated physician and teacher.”
Amiri is a 2012 graduate of the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine and completed his student clinical training in the United States. He earned two bachelor’s degrees – one in chemistry and the other in biology – from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida.
As part of his recognition as the August Resident of the Month, Amiri will receive items including a Certificate of Recognition and a designated parking spot.
