Highlighting the Heroes: Rosalind Franklin University Graduate up for $25K Award

Our H.E.R.O. Award -Honoring Excellent Resident Observations – was launched to highlight the personal sacrifices and educational commitment during a medical resident’s professional adult life.  We realize, considering the fast moving changes in healthcare,  how courageous medical residents are to embark upon a career in medicine with such an uncertain future.  This award is our way of recognizing that courage.

We wanted to take a moment to introduce you to our nominees individually:

Residency Award

Kovid Trivedi

Internal Medicine/Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science – North Chicago, IL
Kovid graduated RGMC from medical college. His most memorable school experience was when he could help translate effectively during his non-work hours from a local dialect to english translation and help save a patient’s life. He is gaining exposure to both civilian medicine and military medicine and feels that he can help touch the lives of millions through primary care. Kovid was forced to leave his beloved family and move to a foreign land  to study medicine.  His parents had to sell household items to make money available for his airfare. Vote for Kovid here.
