Shelley Cobb, MD, CA-1/PGY-2

How can you tell that a resident physician is excelling at what they are doing? Well one of our patients told us all on the acute pain service, "No one touches me but Dr. Cobb. She knows what she's doing." It's a proud moment for us as attendings to see how much our patients respond so well to a resident physician. Dr. Cobb has demonstrated professionalism and skill that are beyond expectations for her level of training and her responsibility and compassion in patient care is exemplary. It's no surprise that she previously received the award for "Outstanding Resident Of The Year." Dr. Cobb is an amazing resident, and we are honored to have her training with us!

Congratulations to Our CA-2 Residents on Passing Their ABA Basic Board Examinations!
