All pass board exams in Peds

Grins were ear-to-ear Dec. 7 in Hurley’s Pediatric Residency Training Program, when board-exam results were announced.

“All of our recent grads who took the American Board of Pediatrics Exam passed … 100% board-passage rate!” announced Associate Program Director Gwen Reyes MD, in an email to the program faculty and residents.

Program Director Mona Hanna-Attisha MD MPH said residents and faculty worked very hard to achieve this goal, which is one of the measures of the program’s success.

“This day is always one of my favorite days,” said Hanna. “100% … It’s one of our biggest outcome measures. … Thank you to our teachers, mentors and everyone who makes this program run.”

Newly board-certified in pediatrics from Hurley are:

  • Zain Alamarat MD
  • Whei Lim MD
  • Candace Mansoor MD
  • Dustin Miller MD
  • Xinyue Pan MD
  • Allison Schnepp MD

Reyes said it takes a lot of dedication to fit in extra board study with all of the responsibility that comes with senior year in a residency program, when residents are “simultaneously starting their careers in pediatrics.” There’s a lot to juggle, and the entire department helped these residents meet their goals, she said. “Congrats to everyone for all of your hard work.”
