We are pleased to announce our 2020 Resident of the Year, Dr. Samuel Crist!
Dr. Crist is described as a source of calm and steadiness in the trenches of the only level 1 trauma center in the nation's 13th largest city, regularly caring for victims of gunshot wounds and other violent crimes. A gunshot wound survivor himself, Dr. Crist relates to his patients in a way they don’t typically experience with their other care providers. Dr. Crist has overcome many personal challenges to be able to provide care for others. While serving as an Infantry Assaultman in 1st Battalion, 8th Marines during the Second Battle of Fallujah, he was shot several times, ending his military career with a medical retirement. After recovering, he graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in history and Arabic. He found employment with the Department of Defense, working in the Intelligence Community in Central Asia. While overseas, he happened upon the battalion surgeon who saved his life in Iraq eight years prior. Under his mentorship and guidance, Dr. Crist decided to pursue a career in medicine himself, fulfilling his prerequisites at Johns Hopkins University and obtaining his MD from Tulane University School of Medicine in 2019.
Dr. Crist is a resident at the John Peter Smith Emergency Medicine Program in Fort Worth, Texas. As the winner, he will be receiving a $5,000 cash grant.
Congratulations, Dr. Crist!
