Casey Patick, M.D., has been selected as the February Resident of the Month, announced Paulette S. Wehner, M.D., vice dean for graduate medical education at the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.
Patick is completing her third and final year as a resident in pediatrics.
“We appreciate our conscientious and hard-working residents and fellows who take excellent care of patients on a daily basis,” Wehner said. “Their dedication to learning how to provide the best possible patient care is commendable and too often goes unnoticed. We like to pause once a month and recognize them for that reason.”
Patick is known within the program for her top-notch physical exam skills and caring attitude.
“Dr. Patick is an excellent clinician,” said Susan Flesher, M.D., pediatrics residency program director. “She has grown by leaps and bounds this year in her confidence and scholarly activity. She now leads one of our recurring department conferences and has recently submitted research to local, regional, and national meetings.”
Patick was nominated by Jay Lakhani, M.D., a pediatrics faulty member who praised her as an outstanding resident who cares for her patients.
“She takes ownership and has great initiative,” Lakhani said. “She will stay late if that means her patient gets the best care possible. This sacrificial and selfless attitude is clear for all to see.”
The South Charleston native graduated from the Marshall’s school of medicine. After completing her pediatric residency in June, she will join Marshall as a faculty member.
As part of her recognition as the February Resident of the Month, Patick received items including a plaque and a designated parking spot.
