Recognizing the value in bringing resident perspective to the executive leadership team, the MedStar Health Physician Leadership Council, under the direction of the Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Stephen Evans, began accepting applications from PGY-2 and above residents and/or fellows in the fall of 2015.
After an extensive review of all the applicants, the Council welcomed Dr. Lee Wong, MD, Chief Resident in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Medstar Franklin Square Medical Center and Dr. Aaron Rich Ducoffe, MD, a PGY-2 resident physician in the Department of Radiology at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
Dr. Wong and Dr. Ducoffe stood out for their unveiling dedication and leadership in health care—not only in their respective fields, but regionally and nationally as well. They will spearhead efforts to improve communication with residents and fellows throughout the system. MedStar Health has more than 80 graduate medical education programs and more than 1,000 residents and fellows spread across six sponsoring institutions.
