Spirit of 2010 Award

The Class of 2010 supports this yearly gift to a current resident who has a planned educational experience that requires additional funding.

Andra Farcas, MD


Because of the Spirit of 2010 Award, I was able to attend the National Association of EMS Physician’s 2020 National EMS Medical Director’s Course and Practicum in beautiful San Diego, CA. I got to learn about a wide variety of EMS systems and meet people in the field from around the country (and a few international attendees as well), discussing not only the basics of medical directorship but also the unique challenges and situations that can arise.”

Terese Whipple, MD


I was able to create eye models with changeable intra-ocular pressure in order to teach program participants to measure IOP with a tonopen and recognize pressures that are too high or too low. At the conference this year I was also able to present a case during the poster presentation session, making me a more competitive applicant when applying for fellowships this fall.”

Danielle Miller, MD


Thank you to the class of 2010 who allowed me to attend the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Learn, Lead, and Serve national conference in Austin Texas in November 2018. Overall this award helped me with my career development, specifically allowing me to acquire specific research tools, understand the current issues that face UME curriculum design, and allowed me to hear from national leaders in UME.”
