Meet LocumTenens.com's 2017 Resident of the Year
We had dozens of incredible nominations featuring highly-skilled, tireless physicians who exemplify our core values of continuing to be better, putting others first, and doing the wise thing. Almost every nominee was someone who is not just managing the grueling grind of residency, but also doing so much good for the underserved outside hospital walls.
Our winner is a dermatologist, Dr. Maureen Offiah, Chief Resident at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. She stood out to us for her dedication to her patients, her peers, and the people of her native Nigeria, to whom she donates her time and talent. Dr. Offiah is dedicated, driven, compassionate and kind. As her nominator stated, “Despite being a loving mother to three kids aged 7-11 and supervising a husband, she is always the first to arrive at clinic and the last to leave.” She will be receiving a $5,000 grant.
